Bear cub found dead under bush inside Central Park

October 6, 2014

NEW YORK (AP) — A bear cub has been found dead under a bush inside New York City’s Central Park, and authorities believe the body may have been dumped there.

Police say the cub was found Monday morning by a Central Park conservancy employee and there were signs of trauma to the body. Authorities suspect animal cruelty played a role in the cub’s death.

No bears were reported missing from area zoos. They’re not among the park’s known wildlife population.

The Bronx Zoo is performing a necropsy to determine how the 3-foot (1-meter) cub died. It wasn’t clear what type of bear it was.
