DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - Officials say there’s evidence a black bear has traveled into Dubuque.

Nate Johnson with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources says tracks found behind a home on the south side of the city belong to a black bear weighing between 100 and 200 pounds. Police say a bear sighting was reported Monday morning.

The Telegraph Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1SyV8wY ) officials believe the bear likely came to Iowa from Minnesota or Wisconsin. There were sightings reported last year in nearby Illinois.
