BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) _ The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department is seeking help in finding a young tagged bear that has been getting into birdfeeders and garbage cans in southeastern Vermont.

People who see the bear are asked to contact the department and remove birdfeeders and other sources that are attracting the bear.

The bear is a yearling male with a red tag in each ear with the number CT 024.

The bear was found denning with its mother under a porch in Connecticut and relocated to another site and given ear tags as part of a wildlife research project.

The bear wandered into Vermont and has been spotted in Brattleboro, Guilford, Dummerston and Marlboro.

People who see the bear are asked to file a bear incident report on the department’s website at vtfishandwildlife.com.
