No Bears! A young black bear (Ursa figawi) has been spotted roaming the western part of the state apparently headed south to the beaches and maybe some clam cakes at George’s. Last seen in Narragansett.
Authorities last night said that a clutch of bear gawkers made it too difficult to shoot the bear with a sedative and that they planned to wait until dawn before attempting to subdue the animal using a tranquilizer dart.
I got a bad feeling about this.
