A motorist driving along West Main Street in the town of Attica reported a black bear in the roadway to police early Friday morning.
Police say the motorist originally thought the black bear was a 'very large dog' before he slowed down and realized it was a bear.
The bear was reported to be roaming around Bunnel Street and West Main Street. Police ask you to never approach a bear or use noise tactics to scare away the bear.
If you see or encounter a bear, you are asked to call the authorities.
