UPDATE: A viewer sent in a photo of a black bear cub near Garwin around 4 p.m.

No word if this bear is the same one spotted near Wellsburg over the weekend.


According to the Grundy County Sheriff's Office, a bear cub was spotted east of Wellsburg Sunday.

Someone saw the black bear cub by itself around 7:00 a.m., and authorities were notified shortly after.

The bear was not captured and was last seen walking south alone.

There hasn't been a second sighting, and no other bears were around.

Authorities say if you see the bear, do not approach it and call authorities.
