STREETSBORO, OH (WOIO) - Residents are on high alert Tuesday after officials shot rubber bullets at a Black Bear that had been spotted several times lurking around in wooded areas.

Wildlife Officials believe this is the same bear that was spotted near Kent State University last week and say "if you do see a bear, respect it. Slowly back away and call the Division of Wildlife or your local police department."
