I meant bears, plural! Another black bear was sighted in the town of Hopedale, just a bit too far away for it to have been the same bear. Also, a mother and two cubs were spotted last week in Blackstone.
People are being advised to take down birdfeeders and make sure "trash is covered", but I find the second suggestion to be laughable. *Do* make noise if you see a bear. They are shy of humans and want to know you are there so that they can avoid you. If you spot a bear, call the police, or the state Division of Fisheries and Wildlife at 508-389-6300.
Hell yes! Bears!
