The bear that was tranquilized in Danbury this month had been tagged and transported to a state forest in Redding. The bear was recently sighted in Weston.
State Department of Energy and Environmental Protection officials confirmed that they relocated the Danbury bear to Centennial Forest, because it was the closest open area for the bear.
According to the DEEP website, black bears are rarely aggressive toward humans and usualy travel and feed at night, but can be active during the day. DEEP Wildlife biologist Paul Rego says there was a different black bear spotted in Redding last week.
