BURTON -- The Geauga County Sheriff's Office is investigating a report of a black bear sighting.

According to a spokesman, a woman living in Burton contacted deputies after seeing the bear in her yard on Kinsman Road.

The bear escaped into the woods before deputies arrived.

Police have been tracking a black bear that showed up in Bedford Heights a few weeks ago and then escaped.

Wildlife officials suspect the bear spotted in Bedford Heights is likely a young male that is trying to get back east and into a more rural area.
