Black bear spotted in Palmyra yard

A black bear was spotted off of Hydesville Road in Palmyra on Tuesday morning. Photos taken by Dick Leeuwen and sent to a Rochester television station the bear apparently targeting what looks like a bird house and feeder.

Last month, the DEC urged homeowners to remove or secure easy food sources, like bird feeders and trash cans, that might attract bears as they emerge from their winter dens.
