A Black Bear is continuing his journey across northern Illinois.

He was spotted Sunday in Chana, Illinois about 90 miles west of Chicago.

Trisha Plescia saw the bear walking through her front yard.

There have been several sightings of the bear over the past month.

Last week, it was spotted in DeKalb County and before that he was roaming through Rockford.

Wildlife experts say it’s a male bear, most likely from Wisconsin or Minnesota, and he’s probably looking for a mate.

The state has no plans to capture the bear unless it poses a threat.

Experts say it’s unlikely the bear will roam in Chicago any time soon.
