A friend of mine sent me these pictures from the South-West side of Fall River this morning. I was immediately blown away that a black bear could make it's way so far into the city without being noticed for so long.

Fall River Animal Control tells us the bear is absolutely harmless. In fact, it's not even alive. A local taxidermist placed the stuffed animal in the snow to attract attention.

It has set off a few alarms with people, but there's nothing to worry about. This bear is as harmless as his cousin, Winnie The Pooh.
