Black Bear Captured In Henrico’s West End

The bear which has been roaming neighborhoods in Henrico's West End is finally caught.

According to Game and Inland Fisheries officials, the bear was trapped in a back yard off of Windingridge Road late Wednesday night.

The bear was uninjured, and will not likely have to be tranquilized. Instead, officials say the bear will be transported to a remote coastal region and released.

Officials think the bear made his way up the river into the Metro Richmond area.
