    The brown phase black bear was recovered, and led back to the Refuge on a three mile hike through the woods across from Whiteface Mountain, avoiding houses and cars. We are still trying to locate the black phase black bear, but we’re pretty disappointed that media jumped all over the escape, not so much the recovery.

    Are the black bears still missing. My husband saw a black bear this evening. We own property and a home on the other side of the Western Branch right near the ADK Wildlife Sanctuary.
