CLAYMONT, Del. (KYW Newsradio) — Several more bear sightings, but this time they’ve been coming from Delaware.
Delaware State Police say there were three bear sightings between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m. Wednesday near the Pennsylvania/Delaware border in the North Wilmington Area.
The first was near the I-95/I-495 split, and then again at Manor Avenue and Philadelphia Pike, and the third was along I-95 at Concord Pike.
Could this be the same bear — or bears — reported recently in Delaware County, in Springfield, Marple Township, Villanova, and elsewhere?
One official trying to figure that out, Jerry Czech with the Pennsylvania Game Commission, told CBS 3 that the animal is looking to eat.
“When it gets into a populated area, there are a lot of dumpsters, so it’s like a buffet for a bear,” he said.
So, it’s time to seal up those trash cans, or keep them inside until its time for them them to be picked up.
Officials urge people to call 911 if they see the animal.
