The Holly Springs police department posted a photo of a black bear they spotted in their parking lot.
They shared a few important reminders of what you can do if you see a black bear or another wild animal.
1. Stay indoors: It’s best to avoid contact with the bear if possible. If spotted, residents should stay inside and make sure their pets are inside as well.
2. Secure all trash and food: Bears are attracted to food, so residents should make sure all trash cans and compost bins are securely closed. They should also remove any bird feeders and pet food from outside.
3. Keep a safe distance: If residents encounter a bear while outside, they should stay a safe distance away and avoid getting between a mother bear and her cubs.
