SHAWANO – Bears have been spotted frequently in Shawano County this week, including on a main road in downtown Shawano.
FOX 11 Reporter Kelly Schlicht and Photojournalist Nathan Garot spotted this black bear in a tree on Green Bay Street in Shawano on Thursday afternoon.
Neighbors stopped to snap pictures. The Department of Natural Resources says it will let the bear come down on its own before trying to tranquilize and trap it.
