Bears spotted in Greenwich backyard, country club

GREENWICH, Conn. (WTNH) — Two separate bear sightings were reported in Greenwich this weekend. The first sighting was in a backyard on Birch Lane on Sunday night, and the second was at Burning Tree Country Club on Monday morning.

The bears were spotted from a distance and did not come into contact with any people or pets. Bear sightings in Greenwich are rare. Black bears travel and feed primarily at night, but can be active any time of the day.
