2007 - A five-year-old, 300 lb. Syrian brown bear named “Willy” is apprehended near the corner of Ott and Fox Roads in Stevensville and returned to Zooz without incident. Willy escaped the night before and evaded two dozen police officers, firefighters from five stations, Zooz employees and a helicopter from the Niagara County (N.Y.) sheriff's office for over 14 hours. All of Stevensville was locked down while authorities searched for the elusive bear. (The Globe and Mail, Aug. 9, 2007, p. A11; The Niagara Falls Review, Aug. 9, 2007, p. A1)
