BOLO For Bear In Babson Park – We have reader reports of a bear being spotted very close to a home on Cody Villa Rd. area this morning.
** Don’t Feed The Bears **
Bears are opportunistic feeders and will remember where to find easy food and return to the location. If they continue to gain access to human provided foods (e.g., garbage, pet food, bird seed) they can be become food conditioned and habituated. Bears that begin to exhibit those behaviors can become a public safety risk and potentially killed by wildlife officials. Remember “A FED BEAR IS A Dead Bear.” If a bear is seen in your yard, reinforce their natural fear of humans by making loud noises from a secure location (e.g., yelling, using car or air horns, or banging pots and pans together).
