Maybe it is possible cuz the black bear from the Allegany Mountain range have moved north right up into Buffalo suburbs from Southern New York/Pennsylvania. Not alot but 1 or 2 maybe. I don't know if these two animals can be related in migratory terms. I don't know, I'd call these bears stray/lost if you know what I mean. Don't forget, BIGFOOT makes it all over the country in just a couple days or so.
