NBC10’s Aaron Baskerville tweeted out video of the bear roaming the Blue Bell/Plymouth Meeting area taking a swim in a local pond.
While Baskerville didn’t give the location, we believe the pond is off Hickory Road in Plymouth Meeting. A nearby resident called us about a helicopter over the area and it was in the area police and the PA Game Commission were searching this afternoon.
There has not been an update from the Plymouth Township Police Department on the status of the bear in a few hours. We will provide an update when we hear more.
Just a black bear living its best life in Plymouth Meeting this afternoon. Police urging neighborhoods in the area to be on alert. The search for this animal and more video tonight on @NBCPhiladelphia at 11pm pic.twitter.com/JTjsEHRwAy— Aaron Baskerville (@ABaskerville10) October 27, 2023
