Black bear killed in Frederick
Frederick city police say a black bear was struck and killed on a highway just south of the city after wandering through some nearby neighborhoods.
Police said shortly before 1 a.m. Monday that a vehicle struck the animal on U.S. 340.
They say the bear wandered through neighborhoods along Route 40 on the west side of the city earlier in the night.
Police say officers tried in vain to contain the bear while awaiting help from the Department of Natural Resources.
They say they followed the bear through several neighborhoods and the Hill Street Park before it crossed Butterfly Lane near Himes Avenue and disappeared on a farm.
