File Photo Black Bear

The Orange Police sent out this announcement today:

The Orange Police received calls this morning regarding bear sightings in the Northwest part of Town. One resident reported the bear had run through their yard (Old Coach Rd), while a second called when the bear rummaged through their garbage (Bayberry La).
These are the first reported sightings this year in Orange, however not the first time we have been visited by black bears. These sightings will become more frequent. Black bears are generally shy, secretive and are usually fearful of humans; however, easy sources of food such as bird feeders and garbage are often too tempting. Removing food sources, such as bird feeders and outdoor garbage cans, reduces the chance that bears will go near homes.
If you see a bear, never attempt to feed it, and advertise your presence by shouting and waving your arms and walking away slowly.
Bear sightings should be reported Orange Police Department at 203-891-2130, The Orange Police will report the sighting to DEEP.
