Black Bear Seen on Old Forge Road

Around 1:00 p.m. today, a black bear was seen along Old Forge Road, and later on Lewisberry Road in Fairview Township. Police responded to the area, but did not locate the bear. Typically this time of year, young black bears leave their mothers and seek out a new area to live. Bears may be attracted to bird feeders and garbage, so residents should keep those items secure. Due to the heat, bears may also be attracted to ponds, streams, and  swimming pools. Black bears will usually run when confronted, and typically only attack when they feel threatened or when protecting food or their young. If a bear is seen, please stay indoors and contact police and the PA Game Commission.
