NORTH GRAFTON, Mass. (WHDH) — Veterinarians euthanized a young black bear found roaming around Newton earlier this week.
Massachusetts Environmental Police officers relocated the bear to Tufts Wildlife Clinic Wednesday to be evaluated.
A physical examination, including radiographs, showed that the bear suffered from multiple fractures and other wounds, possibly caused by a collision with a car, a spokeswoman for Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University said.
Veterinarians consulted with MassWildlife officials and determined that rehabilitation would not be possible.
