A black bear was spotted and photographed in a neighborhood off of Falls Road this morning, Rockville City police announced. It was climbing a tree in the Horizon Hill neighborhood, off Sunrise Drive. It is not known if it is the same bear who was captured in Rockville and released upcounty last month, or a new visitor. Officers are again working with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources to locate and capture the bear. If you spot the bear, call RCPD at 240-314-8900. Stay calm, and do not approach, feed or attempt to capture the animal.
