WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU) Another bear was spotted in the Wausau city limits. On Friday night the bear was seen near the corner of Scott and 10th Street. Police followed him for about a half-hour until he disappeared into a wooded area near Hawthorn Hills Elementary School.
This time of year bears are eating to prepare for hibernation. Their sleep patterns are also off because of the unusually mild weather.
The D-N-R says it does not intervene in bear cases unless the animals become aggressive towards humans. In most cases, bears avoid human contact and head back into the woods on their own.
