tell your children who are going out for Halloween to be careful. A bear was seen in Orchard Hill two nights ago
Last night a black bear was seen near Sprain Road/Ardsley Road. Two nights ago a bear was seen in Orchard Hill (Orchard Hill is located near Knollwood Road/Dobbs Ferry Road). Bears move around. A community leader sent me the following e mail. I deleted his address. I am also posting a video presentation from the NYS DEC two years ago - regarding state policy dealing with bears. The NYS DEC does not remove black bears unless they are deemed to be dangerous. I googled what to do if you see a black bear. These are some tips from New Jersey. https://www.nj.gov/dep/fgw/pdf/bear/bearfacts_safetytips.pdf
Bears move around. So the bear could move to another section of town in the coming days. Posting this info because many children will be out today and tomorrow for Halloween. PAUL FEINER
