There have been multiple sightings of bears in the region. One, today June 5 2017 off of County Line Rd in Feasterville, Pa.  Residents observed the bear near a swim club that was closed,  and watched as it scampered into a tree. bears really do not like people, they are scared of them.  As the bear saw people gather, he climbed a tree and began to eat leaves. as the mid morning incident unfolded, about 9:30 AM,  even more people flocked to the area , with cellphones and video cameras, hoping to get a glimpse of the animal.

As the bear ascended the tree, the most people could go was to grab a snapshot of a dark clump, in the tree. They could tell people it was a bear.  You needed a long lens to get any kind of a decent image.  Cops kept people back a little bit.  According to Game Warden Jerry Czek “The people are helping, I don’t wangt him to come down,  he will run. The bear soon took a nap and  the people were moved  way back.

A tranquilizer dart was fired at the bear and he became woozy. He then came down on his own. “He will be processed ( photographed and tagged) and then released near Dauphin County”, Czek said.   He said the bear might have wandered from his family. It appeared to be not fully grown.
