Bear cub spotted in tree in Tuskegee – Photo from Frank Lee, Macon County Emergency Management Agency

A bear has been spotted in Tuskegee, according to Macon Co. EMA Director Frank Lee.

Lee says a doorbell camera caught a photo of the bear early this morning. He says residents in the Bibb Street area need to be aware of it.

The bear appears to be a cub when it was spotted in a tree.

Lee says his office is in contact with state and local partners to take mitigation measures. He told WAKA 8 that the game warden has been called out and it will be up to him what the next steps will be.
