Hungry bear stops by Ludlow backyard

MassWildlife says bird feeders can be taken down to avoid attracting bears

LUDLOW, Mass. (WWLP) – There have been numerous bear sightings across western Massachusetts this spring and summer seasons.

This week, Ludlow resident Rob Paquette told 22News a bear stopped by his neighbor’s backyard Monday, so they set up a camera in case it returned.

What they caught on camera Thursday night was a large bear grabbing bird seed from a dangling feeder.

Paquette said the video was taken from a backyard on Lawton Street.
