City Bear Gets Attention in Waterbury

Submitted by Rob Gilmore

The zoo came to Waterbury on Wednesday and it was quite the sight in the city.

One viewer said the bear arrived in the Buck's Hill area of Waterbury in the morning. At noon, the bear ran into a tree when animal control arrived.

Officials from the state Department of Environmental Protection captured the bear right after 3 p.m.

We received the first e-mail just before 2 p.m. about a black bear at the Ellsworth Avenue and Kodak Street.
