WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- There's a bear making the rounds in Northern Westchester.

A black bear was captured on video making the rounds in the Waterbury Manor development in Cortlandt Manor on Tuesday.

Early on in the video, the bear seemingly looked like it might attempt to climb the steps to the front door of the first home it made an uninvited visit to, before it checked out the backyard before rambling to another home.

Anyone who may see the bear, should stay clear of the animal and refrain from approaching it to take photographs.

Black bear populations are largely concentrated in upstate New York but there are smaller populations elsewhere, including the Hudson Valley, according to the state Department of Environmental Conservation

While black bears are omnivores and largely consume grasses, berries, fruit and insects, they will also eat human food, including bird seed, honey, and corn.
