Another Bear Reported in Westford

Elementary school students were forced to have recess inside.

A black bear spotted on the west side of town on March 19, prompted school officials to keep students inside during recess, as a precaution, according to WHDH-TV
The bear was seen in the late morning in the area of Robinson Road. 
Officials don't believe that the bears will harm anyone but they are advising people to make loud noises when they are around, in order to scare them away.

Prom: I was just using Han's joke to leap into my own. It would have to be shotgun here in MA. I think the only thing you can hunt with a rifle is coyote, everything else has be a shotgun (or black-powder in season). I bow hunt and try to avoid the season when shotgun starts. Too many people scaring everything away. Actually bear meat is quite good if fresh and nothing is better for frying than bear fat.
