City streets bare of bears


Before it did, however, it got a taste of civilization.

Lottie said the bear was seen crossing busy Rugar Street close to its intersection at Sanborn Avenue. 

It was spotted swimming in the Saranac River and made its way downtown to Lake Champlain, near the Naked Turtle bar/restaurant. 

Both police departments monitored the cub until it left the vicinity later Thursday.
