There's a Bear in Them Woods! in Wilton CT

There's a Bear in Them Woods!  in Wilton, CT

For the last six months or so, the town of Wilton has been following a mother bear and her cub, named Lily.    There have been feeding stations set  up, and folks out with video watching them off and on.   They are not quite regular in their visits, so they are not always caught in sight.

Black Bear in Wilton CT

 

 

 

Last week, on Monday, a bear was  spotted in Redding, in Georgetown on Tuesday, and three spottings in Wilton on Wednesday.   Wilton police sent out email notification of the sightings at 8:25, - first sighting at 6 am near the Wilton Riding Club on Riding Club Road off of Olmstead Hill Road.   By 6:30, it was spotted at Merwin Meadows on Merwins Lane off of Lovers Lane.  

 

At 8 am, it was spotted on Belden Hill Road south of Drum Hill Road.   It was struck by a car, and fled into the woods heading in the direction of the South Norwalk Reservoir.   Damage to the vehicle was minimal, so they said.

According to the DEP, there have been 2,785 sightings of bears in the state of CT between June 23, 2009 and June 22, 2010.    According to the DEP website, the males wander great distances in June, seeking out females.  Males tend to have a home range of 12 to 60 square miles.   Females stay closer to home.

There is a Facebook site for following Lily and her mom.  These sightings above were probably a male bear.

I want to remind all readers that this is not a normal event in our lives here in CT, and I have only seen bear in Alaska.
