Bear seen limping through Westfield neighborhood

WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A wounded bear was seen roaming around a Westfield neighborhood over the weekend.

22News viewer Laura Tremont sent us two videos of a bear, which appears to be limping, outside a home on Spruce Circle Saturday afternoon.

The bear’s apparent injury didn’t stop the animal from grabbing a snack out of a nearby bird feeder, however.

The Westfield police were called in to deal with the bear, and they called in the Massachusetts Environmental Police. But by the time the environmental police arrived, though, the bear was gone.
