A 400-pound bear has been struck by a truck and killed in New Milford. Police responded to the accident yesterday afternoon on Route 7 near the town border with Brookfield. State Environmental Officials say the black bear was about 5-years old and a male.
It was transported to Burlington to be studied.
Based on size and because there were no tags, DEEP spokesman Dwayne Gardner says this was not the same bear that was spotted on Main Street in Danbury earlier this month.
Bear sightings have been sporadic around the Greater Danbury area in the pas month.
