Not the actual bear.
PENDLETON — A Pendleton Town Councilman is warning residents — and their pets — to be on the lookout for a black bear.

The bear was reportedly seen Tuesday night, causing state Department of Environmental Conservation officials and Niagara County Sheriff's deputies to search for it.

The DEC said that the Western New York black bear population is at its highest level in decades, estimating that 300 to 500 bears currently live in the area, although most of them call the Southern Tier home. A few have found their way north to Buffalo, Amherst and parts of Niagara County — including Pendleton, apparently.

In July of 2009, Town of Amherst police shot and killed a young black bear that had wandered near homes and businesses in a populated area near Millersport Highway and North French Road, only a couple miles from where the bear in Pendleton was spotted.
