Black bear seen wandering around NH shopping center
KEENE — There have been multiple reports of a bear seen roaming around a Keene shopping plaza Tuesday afternoon.
According to a worker at Dr. Dexter's Vision Center, a black bear appeared to be walking outside the Hannaford's in the West Street Shopping Center. Photographs were taken and the Keene Police were notified about the incident.
The bear eventually wandered back off into local woods after the brief appearance in the shopping center, the worker said.
NH1 News spoke with New Hampshire Fish and Game officials, but the department had not been informed on the bear sighting at the time. NH1 News also reached out to the Keene Police Department and are awaiting a response.
Updates will be posted as they arrive.
