[ARCHIVED] Bear sightings

Recently, there have been multiple reports of a black bear on Taxer Road and previously in the IWP near Hermit's Grave. It is recommended that residents and trail hikers use caution when walking in the Irvington Woods Park and other nearby wooded areas.

It is also recommended that residents living near the Irvington Woods Park and other wooded areas secure their trash or move it out of their yard, take-down any bird feeders, remove any other food sources, and keep dogs on leash when walking in wooded areas to help avoid any encounters.
