REDDING, Conn. — A Redding couple who live near John Read Middle School spotted a large black bear in their backyard over the weekend, according to the Redding Pilot.

The bear appeared to check out a bear-proof birdfeeder at the home on Beauiles Lane before heading on its way on Saturday afternoon — without getting a snack, the Redding Pilot said.
