Antrim police log: May 30, 2013
Monday, May 20
Animal complaint: At 7:20 p.m., police were advised of a bear trapped in a fenced portion of a caller’s yard on Old Concord Street. Sergeant Ryan Storro responded to the area and noted that the fence was low enough to the ground to where the bear could get out on its own. He advised the people at the scene not to get too close to the bear. N.H. Fish and Game was called and told of the situation, and responders from Fish and Game said they would come if necessary. But they agreed with Storro that the bear would likely leave on its own. No further incident was reported.
