Bear perches above NH bus stop
CONWAY, N.H. (AP) -- A school bus stop in Conway, N.H., has been temporarily re-located due to the appearance of a 300-pound black bear.
Conway police told WMWV radio that the bear was first spotted Tuesday morning sitting about 60 feet up a pine tree. Police guarded the stop Wednesday morning while students waited for their bus, and the stop has been moved to another area while officers figure out how to safely trap and transfer the bear.
New Hampshire Fish and Game conservation officers are working with a state wildlife biologist on how best to accomplish that. In the meantime, police say the bear looks very comfortable and isn't bothering anyone.
