RALEIGH — If state wildlife investigators know who left a dead black bear on a bench on N.C. State Universitys campus on Tuesday, theyre not saying so publicly.
Though theyre working with a wide range of evidence, according to a Wildlife Resources Commission spokesman, the state agency released no new information Wednesday about the previous days suspected prank.
A spokesman for the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services declined to say whether the Rollins Laboratory in Raleigh had finished examining the adult bear, estimated to weigh 200 to 250 pounds. A wildlife commission spokesman didnt reply to a request for comment Wednesday afternoon.
Chatter about the bear continued Wednesday. Some people posted photos online of what apparently is a memorial shrine at the bench in the Brickyard where the bear was found Tuesday morning, including red flowers and a balloon with a message of condolence.
