FAIRFIELD - A black bear has been spotted in Fairfield.

A viewer sent News 12 Connecticut a picture of the animal she says was on Stevenson Road last night.

She says the picture is a little blurry because they were running, but you can see what looks like a bear toward the upper left hand side of the picture.

Shortly after News 12 Connecticut received those images, a viewer in Easton sent a photo of a bear they saw last night.

Officials are not sure if the pictures are of the same animal.

Fairfield police say Animal Control and the state Department of Environmental protection are looking into it.
