Bear Sighting Photos

There's been another black bear sighting in  the suburbs. The latest sighting come from Lancaster, along a stretch of Genesee Street east of Pavement Road in Lancaster.   Folks living near the Fox Valley Country Club reporting seeing the bear this week.

It could be the same bear that was sighted in the Clinton Street - Union Road area in West Seneca last weekend.   Police say to keep pets indoors as much as possible and don't leave garbage out or anything else that might attract the animal      

 If you can safely snap a picture of bears in your neighborhood, you can share it on WBEN.com, by sending them to newsroom@wben.com or texting to 30930, and be sure to include a locator.

Near 7 pm Monday night, the Lancaster Police Department posted these photos of the bear, with this cautionary statement , on thier Facebook page.

Within the last hour we have received multiple reports of a black bear seen in the area of Fox Valley Country Club on Genesee Street. These sightings were confirmed by our officers. Residents are urged to keep children and pets inside and call Lancaster Police at 683-2800 if you observe the bear.
The attached photos were taken of the bear eating out of a resident's bird feeder.
