(NECN: Julie Loncich) - The now-infamous Cape Cod Bear was spotted again Thursday morning in Provincetown, Mass.
When I talked to the woman who saw this bear, she told me he wasn't threatened, he wasn't in a hurry. In fact, she said he looked like he was on vacation along with everyone else in P-Town.
"He was adorable, really. He was cute," said Cindy Suter.
Might not be the way you'd describe a wild black bear, but then again, this isn't your average bear.
And as it turns out, it isn't Suter's average vacation now, thanks in part to a sighting of the 200 pound animal crossing Race Point Road in front of her car on the way to the Visitor Center.
"He was definitely a young bear, like they've been saying and he wasn't huge," said Suter. "But he seemed healthy, and relaxed and didn't seem scared."
Suter was the latest person to spot the bear that has defied all odds, by swimming a canal and tracking some 65 miles to the tip of the Cape, and found a way to start up a Twitter account.
"We're from central New York and we've camped quite a bit in the Adirondacks and we've seen a lot of black bear," said Edward Smith of Phoenix, NY. "They're just moving stomachs. Throw them a Twinkie and walk on. They're happy."
Unfortunately, for Mr. Bear, he won't be getting any free handouts here. And at the Cape Cod National Seashore, he's supposed to be tethered anyways.
"We're happy to have him here and we hope he finds a mate, but I'm not too sure he's going to find one here," said Bob Sanborn, Director of Tourism in Provincetown.
Provincetown's Director of Tourism says the bear is good for business, and he'd like to keep it that way. Because here on old Cape Cod, the bear is now considered just another local.
"Finds his way back. Zoos probably aren't a good place to live," said Smith.
Wildlife officials said it may be time to tranquilize the bear and move him to a safer location, but so far, that hasn't happened.
