Don't call it an invasion.
A black bear was spotted in central Bucks County on Wednesday morning - the third time in less than a month that a bear has been seen wandering through Philadelphia's suburbs.
This particular bear, first spotted Wednesday morning around Chalfont, had apparently made its way toward New Britain Township just before noon, where police were warning residents not to approach it.
From there, the Pennsylvania Game Commission said, the bear's trail went dark. It's possible the beast simply wandered back into the wilderness on its own.
"This is becoming more and more common," said Cheryl Trewella, the commission's information and education supervisor for the southeast region. "This time of year, this is just kind of what [bears] do, so we're all prepared."
