Black Bear spotted in Paramus, NJ A black bear was spotted this morning by a Paramus resident and friend of mine. He spotted it somewhere on Farview Avenue in Paramus, NJ. I later read about another sighting this morning on Century Road in Paramus. Recently in the news there have been numerous bear spottings in Emerson, Oradell & Westwood. I am very glad to say that when I was out this morning at 9am showing houses, we did not see any bear!
