Second Black Bear Sighting In South Jersey In Two Days

Posted: Updated:

Just three days ago, a black bear was spotted in Atco, prompting nearby schools to go on temporary lock down.

Just one day later, another bear was spotted in Medford Township.  Police were called out to the Highbrodge Development for a report of a bear walking around the neighborhood.

Police did eventually spot the bear who wandered into an area near Wharton State Forest.

The bear did not exhibit any aggressive behavior.

If you encounter a bear, you should make noise and avoid eye contact.  Secure all bird feeders and trash cans.   Never approach or or feed a bear.
