CHARDON, Ohio – A Chardon resident spotted something in her backyard that many can say they haven’t seen in person before — or at least not outside of a zoo.
Geauga County resident, Melissa Colbary Dahlhausen, saw a black bear tackling a bird feeder in her backyard on Woodin Road in Chardon.
This isn’t the first time a black bear sighting was reported in Northeast Ohio. In January, a park visitor was walking through the snow-covered trails of the Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath near Akron when tracks resembling a bear were spotted.
The Summit County Metroparks confirmed the tracks belonged to a black bear.
