Bear sighting are typical this time of year, when young bears are chased away by thier mother to fend for themselves.

“The black bear was spotted in the center of the township near Shirley Lane.”

Bell adds, if you happen to come across the bear’s path.

“Slowly walk the opposite direction of the bear. Get in a shelter or a vehicle. The bear will likely not want to have anything to do with people. Also be mindful if you have food or anything the bear wants to eat, he will investigate the smell.”
