Heads up if you live in Clinton, or are traveling in that surrounding area, a bear has been spotted in the area.

First reported by the CNY’s Finest facebook page, A bear has been spotted roaming in the area of Brimfield Street to Res Hill Road. The DEC is currently aware and are monitoring it.

The DEC reminds New Yorkers that Black bears are an important and natural component of New York’s ecosystem.

Whether you live or recreate in the bear country, please help maintain and protect the bears, and at the same time protect yourself and your property by not feeding bears and by reducing bear attractants.”

Here’s a couple bear facts they have posted about the bears spotted around our area:

Black bears are large – They have erect, rounded ears; a long, narrow, brown muzzle; and a short tail. An average adult male weighs about 300 pounds while females average about 170 pounds.
Black bears can remain dormant for up to 5 months in winter.
Bears eat nearly anything – They are omnivorous; eating grasses, berries, fruit, nuts, seeds, insects, grubs, and carrion, as well as human sources of food like corn, honey, bird seed, trash, and pet food when available.
Bears are curious – They spend a great deal of time exploring for food, and this can bring them close to humans.
Bears are intelligent – Bears learn from experience. If an activity results in food, they will repeat that activity. If an encounter with a human is negative, they learn to avoid humans. Also if an encounter with a human doesn’t result in a reward (food), they will not have any reason to have contact with humans.
Bear management involves bear hunting.”

If you see this bear in the Clinton area, please contact the DEC by email at contact@dec.ny.gov or get in touch 518-408-5850.
