DUBUQUE, Iowa (KWWL) -- There have been multiple sightings in the past week of a black bear roaming in the Dubuque area.
On Friday, the DuTrac Community Credit Union posted a photo on Facebook of the bear roaming near the bank!
Earlier this week, resident Justin Jansen also spotted a bear along Mud Lake Road at night and caught it on video that he posted on Facebook.
The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has said recently there's a good chance a few wandering black bears will come down from the north ahead of the breeding season.
Black bears are native to Iowa. However, the Hawkeye State hasn't had a resident bear population for more than 100 years, the DNR said.
