Social media lit up early in the week as a bear was spotted in Corydon. Now, the bear has made it's way into Washington County.

According to Sheriff Roger Newlon, the bear is traveling North and has been spotted in the Fredericksburg area.

Newlon said they were called to a house near Palmyra Lake Road as a female resident couldn't leave her house due to the bear being in her driveway.

Newlon said by the time they arrived the bear had made its way back into the woods.

“It had gotten in the trash and was looking for food,” he said. “We could tell where he went back down into the woods.”


Newlon said the conservation officers are trying to keep tabs on where the bear is. He asked that if anyone sees it they stay away but alert the sheriff's department about the location by calling 812-883-2834.
