WEST DEPTFORD, N.J. (CBS) — Bear sightings continue to pop up around South Jersey. A bear was spotted in West Deptford on Tuesday morning.
Wildlife agencies told the West Deptford Police Department that the bear does not pose a threat so it does not need to be trapped and relocated.
Police say the bear seems to have an appetite for birdseeds and trash.
“We ask everyone to simply stay inside if the bear is in your area. Securing trash and bird feeders will assist with moving it along,” West Deptford police said.
Residents are encouraged to not go into neighborhoods to see the bear because that will scare or disturb it.
