A black bear was seen on Tuesday morning at Old Mountain Field and tracked to South Kingstown High School. The animal was last spotted heading north on North Road. Police said the bear was not aggressive and did not approach people.
The sighting comes after 10 bear reports in one week in Cranston, earlier this month.
“We're definitely getting more reports of bear sightings,” said Mike Healey, public affairs director for the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management.
