Cranberry police are warning residents to keep animal food indoors after a black bear wandered through the community Thursday.

Patrons at the Buffalo Wild Wings along Route 19 spotted the bear perched in a tree behind the restaurant around 9:30 p.m., according to Public Safety Director Jeff Schueler. The bear stayed in the tree for nearly two hours before heading toward Interstate 79 and disappearing in the woods. The bear had earlier been spotted along Executive Drive, not far from the restaurant, Schueler said.

Schueler said the bear didn't threaten anyone. He added that those who keep food outside, such as dog food or bird seed in feeders, should keep the food indoors so that it doesn't attract the bear.
