Wareham police warn residents of bear that ‘refused to stop for questioning’

This bear is on a mission and isn’t stopping for anything.

Wareham police are warning residents of a bear that was seen in the area of Indian Mound.

According to police, the bear is moving at a high rate of speed and ‘refusing to stop for questioning.’

Another bear was also spotted this week taking a dip near the docks in Buzzard’s Bay. It is unclear if it is the same bear spotted in Wareham.

Police ask if you see the bear, to maintain a safe and respectful distance from all wildlife and absolutely do not approach it.

As always, please maintain a safe and respectful distance from all wildlife and absolutely do not approach. Wareham police are also recommending keeping pets indoors.
