The black bear was spotted in a Cranston neighborhood on Tuesday. 

According to WPRI, The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management said the bear has been following a patch up the Pawtuxet River.  DEM says bear populations are on the rise in Southern New England.

Officials tell WPRI that there is no reason to panic because the bear isn't creating any public safety concerns. The DEM said they will continue to monitor the situation.
