MATTAPOISETT (CBS) – A black bear was spotted in Mattapoisett on Sunday.

The bear was seen on Eldorado Drive at around 10:30 a.m.

Police are urging residents to use caution and call 911 if they see the bear. The bears, however, are rarely aggressive.

“Right in the cul de sac was a bear, just sitting there staring at me, and I noticed it had something in its mouth, and that’s what concerned me the most, that there was an animal in its mouth,” said Pat Olivier, who spotted the bear in Mattapoisett.

A black bear was recently spotted in Attleboro.
