Bear seems to be moving south


NASHUA (KWWL) -- The Iowa Department of Natural resources says a young male black bear that was seen over the past few weeks in Mitchell and Worth counties has apparently started moving south, along the Cedar River.

DNR officials say the young bear, believed to be around 2-years old was spotted Sunday about six miles northwest of Nashua.

A persistent rumor heard last week was that the bear had been shot, but DNR officials say they believe the report is incorrect.
