Westport police today advised residents of a bear sighting in the area of Easton Road and Town Crier Lane.
Police said at about 10:54 a.m., a resident saw the animal in a yard on Town Crier Lane. It then walked off into the woods in a northerly direction.
“If you observe the bear, do not approach,” police said in a telephone message to area residents.
The report followed by three weeks a reported sighting in the Old Road area.
There were also Westport sightings in July, including one in which a bear appeared on the back deck of a home on Charcoal Hill Commons.
Police advised anyone spotting a bear to notify police and the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) Wildlife Division at (860) 675-8130.
