They say they believe that the bear had been hit by a vehicle sometime Tuesday night.
North Carolina Wildlife Officers were called to the scene and removed the 125 lbs. 2-year-old male black bear from the scene.
The night before around 9:30 p.m., police were called to a sighting of black bear on Arendell Ave.
Officers say they saw the black bear along the fence line of the property running parallel to Hwy 64 East and into the woods on the other side.
The sighting is just one of several that have been reported across the Triangle recently.
On Monday, bears were spotted in Chapel Hill and in Durham. Before that on Saturday morning, a black bear was seen walking around in a Cary subdivision.
Bears have also popped up in Raleigh last week and caused three Garner schools to go on a brief lock down.
Officials have said mating season is the reason the bears are so active. They say if you see a bear leave it alone and call the authorities.
Animal Control also says to avoid attracting the animals, pick-up and secure all trash, try not to feed pets outdoors or leave pet food outside and do not leave any food outside.
