Bear cub wanders through Plattsburgh

Posted: Updated:
PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. -

A wandering bear cub may still be on the loose in Plattsburgh.

Plattsburgh police say the cub hasn't been seen overnight and most likely found its way back into the woods.

It was last seen near the boat launch Thursday around 5 p.m.

Police also had reports of it swimming in Lake Champlain.

City officers tried to scare the cub into the woods and contacted the Department of Environmental Conservation.

They say if it shows back up Friday, the DEC will capture the bear and bring it back to the woods.
