Wanted!

Black Bear on the loose in Geddes

And he’s really pissed off about The Noise!

No idea if this is really for real, but if this dude managed to get across West Genesee Street, watch out, Westvale and Taunton.

Updated: Apparently the bear did get across WG Street… Possibly a false alarm about a bear on Merriwether Drive; the bear has been caught close to where it was originally seen.

Meanwhile, back in the real world, shots were fired near an elementary school today. Not enough to warrant a headline on Syracuse.com or to be the first story on WSYR’s evening newscast, however. Everyone’s still talking about a damn bear.
