Black Bear Spotted in Marlboro Road Neighborhood

The following information was supplied by the Sudbury Police Department. Where arrests are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.

The Sudbury Police Department is advising residents to bring in all outdoor food sources after two Marlboro Road residents reported seeing a black bear on Saturday night.

According to Lt. Scott Nix, the department contacted the environmental police, who suggested telling residents to bring in bird feeders. Black bears are currently foraging for food prior to hibernation season.

"It's not unusual (to see bears this time of year)," Nix said. "Hopefully by eliminating easy food sources the bear will leave the area and seek a more consistent diet," Nix said.

<i>Daniel F. Roberge, 48, of 1 Homeless St., </i> Um, I think Daniel doesn't have an actual fixed address, if you know what I mean.

We should file a 51A on the Black Bear.

"A Boston Post Road resident reported someone throwing pebbles at the house with the hope of getting someone's attention" Is this a joke? This honestly seems like satire. People these days...

And I thought it was a case of waxing poetic....
