Black bear safely removed from campus
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation safely removed a black bear from campus today. The bear was found sleeping in a tree in F Lot by RIT Public Safety earlier this morning. They quickly secured the area.
The bear will be transported to a new home elsewhere in the state. F Lot, located in the northern portion of campus, will be reopened shortly.
