BEDFORD HEIGHTS (WKYC)-- A black bear spotted in Bedford Heights has been cornered in a tree.
Crews have tried to use water from a fire hose to get the bear down--but that only caused the animal to climb higher into the treetops.
Now the plan is to build a containment fence around the area and to tranquilize the bear once it climbs down from the tree.
It's believed to be the same black bear that was sighted at the Bedford Heights border near Oakwood Village Monday.
A Bedford police dispatcher received a call from a traveler who reported seeing the black bear on Solon Road, just east of Northfield Road early Monday.
The same dispatcher heard that a black bear may have also been sighted at the Bedford Heights border, near Oakwood Village at about 6:30 p.m. Monday.
