Police and Hudson Valley officials are warning the public after black bears were spotted near I-84, Route 52, and a local hotel.

On Tuesday, June 21, the Town of Fishkill Police Department confirmed a black bear was spotted near the Courtyard by Marriott Fishkill. Police jokingly wondered if the bear was hoping to play "hide and seek" with any hotel guests.
