PEEKSKILL, N.Y. -- A bear was seen enjoying the Hudson River Monday night.

After the bear was spotted near the Charles Point Marina at about 8 p.m., police cleared the scene about an hour later when the bear swam back across the river toward, appropriately enough, Bear Mountain State Park, according to multiple reports.

For a viewer video of the bear swimming, check this News 12 video.

Bear sightings are at a record level in the Hudson Valley and state officials are tracking data on vehicle accidents involving bears. A bear was killed near the Taconic Parkway in Hopewell Junction on May 2.
