Reported Bear Sightings Near Fuller Road

bearTwo citizens called the police department and reported seeing a bear near the intersection of Broad Street and Fuller Road.  The first call was received at 5 p.m. and the citizen stated a bear was in the field at that intersection. The bear was apparently walking toward Broad Street. Officers were not able to locate the bear.

A second citizen called the police department at 7:45 p.m. and stated that she just saw a large bear in a backyard of a residence on Calle Del Caminos. Calle Del Caminos is the street just north of Fuller Road. The bear was in the creek area.

The police department sent numerous officers to the area but they were not able to locate the bear. Police are reasonably certain both of these callers were reporting the same bear but we do not know if it is the same bear that was reported within the last week in the San Luis Drive area.

The police department requests to be contacted if anyone sees a bear in the city.
