Sammy the bear escaped from the SPCA shelter
FRUITPORT TOWNSHIP - A black bear spotted in a Muskegon County community for several days is no longer roaming the streets. The animal was caught around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday near the intersection of Airline Rd. and Sternberg Rd.
The bear was spotted in a backyard Tuesday evening. SPCA shelter owners went to that location, then followed bear to where it was tranquilized and caught.
They say the DNR was called several times, but never showed up.
Police say the bear had been on the loose since Saturday, wandering through neighborhoods and turning over garbage cans as it searched for food.
