Police and Wild Life officials are searching for a black bear that was spotted several times in Princeton, New Jersey on Saturday.

Princeton Police confirmed that the bear was seen on the 200 block of Mt. Lucas Road as well as the 900 block of Stuart Road. The bear was also spotted on the Princeton University campus around 2:30 a.m. Saturday morning.

Last month, a black bear was spotted in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. After wandering for several days, the 3-year-old male bear was tranquilized and captured.

Officials warn residents to never feed or approach a bear, remain calm and avoid direct eye contact. For more bear safety tips, click here:
