BOSTON (CBS) – A black bear was spotted near Route 2 east in Westminster Wednesday morning.

Investigators from Environmental Affairs are heading to the area to track it down, spokesman Reggie Zimmerman told WBZ-TV.

State and local police have shut down part of the road as a precaution.

In Wayland, students were kept inside three schools in town after a bear was seen there Wednesday morning.

It’s not clear if that bear is the one spotted in Weston Tuesday morning.
