For the second time in a week, a black bear roaming the Philadelphia suburbs has been euthanized after being found injured, state officials said.
Around 2 a.m. Friday, a male bear was spotted in Horsham Township, Montgomery County, near the Wawa at County Line Road and Route 611, said Cheryl Trewella, spokeswoman for the Pennsylvania Game Commission. It was later seen in nearby woods.
The bear was initially sighted Wednesday in Chalfont and New Britain Boroughs in Bucks County, Trewella said.
Finding a trail of blood, police and game officers suspected the bear was injured. The bear was having difficulty getting around, Trewella said.
