NEWTON (24/7 NewsSource) -- A young black bear that was seen wandering the streets of Newton is dead.

The bear was spotted in the areas of Crystal Lake and Centre Street earlier this week.

The animal was found again Wednesday, tranquilized, and taken to Tufts Wildlife Clinic.

It was there that veterinary doctors discovered extensive fractures and wounds, likely from being hit by a vehicle.

The bear was euthanized yesterday.
