A bear is spotted at 1 p.m. today first on the deck and then helping himself to the contents of a birdfeeder hanging in a tall tree in the backyard of a home in Quemazon. The homeowner contacted the police who are now tracking the bear. When the bear left the residence, he was traveling in a northeasterly direction. The latest word is he was spotted near Torreon in Quemazon a short while later and perhaps moved on to lower Quemazon. The Quemazon Montessori has been notified. Courtesy photo
