Wadsworth Police confirm that they received a call for a bear siting, Sunday evening.

An officer was dispatched to the scene to confirm the siting, and it was in fact a bear.

In a video posted to the Wadsworth PD Facebook page, the black bear can be seen eating from a bird feeder behind a home.

Officials consulted with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources on best practices.

ODNR believes the bear migrated from Pennsylvania.

The Department also released the following tips for dealing with bears. :

-Bears will roam 5-10 miles a night in search of food

-Bears are not typically aggressive, but if seen you should keep your distance

-They also suggest to bring in your bird feeders at night and ensure your trash cans are secure.

The last reminder, when in doubt, contact the police department.
