Another Bear Sighting

by Bobby Blair
August 30, 2017

Tedd Mottor of 870 Washington Street had quite the surprise Tuesday night as he returned home around mid-night. Mr. Mottor reports that a large bear ambled across his lawn at the corner of School and Washington Streets headed for Goodwill Park. Mr. Mottor said that if he had continued straight down Washington Street he may have hit the bruin with his vehicle. This is the third sighting of a bear in town in the past three weeks.

On August 14th a bear destroyed the above bee hive on Locust Street. The previous week a bear was spotted on a front lawn on Hanlon Road. Could it be that the Mudville bear was just checking out winter hibernation quarters at the old Andrew's School?

I think at this point, we can stop referring to it as "a" bear, and call it "the" bear. Heck, we might as well hold a contest to name it. Prize for the first Hollistonian who determines its gender? And, from MassWildlife, the following warning 9to the bear): Black Bear Hunting 2017 Season Dates: First Season: Sept. 5 - Sept. 23 Second Season: Nov. 6 - Nov. 25 Shotgun Season: Nov. 27 - Dec. 9 (Special rules apply) All dates inclusive. Hunting is prohibited on Sundays.

I think this may have been the 4th sighting! We had a bear knock down one of our hives on Tuesday night - 8/22. My husband scared him away and he went back into the woods. Debbie Flusser

Hey Bobby! Thanks for the article. One minor correction...it was Monday night (not Tuesday), just a few seconds after midnight (so technically Tuesday morning). Andrea Chesmore captured video of the bear crossing Washington St. from her security camera at the funeral home. She just posted it in the comment section of my post about the bear sighting on the "I'm Holliston Happy" Facebook page. Great detective work by her to find it. Very cool to see, but pretty unsettling as well. Glad I was turning onto School St. or I might've hit it. That thing must be 300 pounds!
