Black Bear on the Run in South Jersey
Did you not hear me before? Hide your picnic baskets!
A particular Black Bear has been on the move, and has been popping up in several South Jersey communities. The picture you're seeing is not the actual bear I speak of. I found this picture online. If I personally encountered the bear, I would run for my life, and scream like a little girl. I don't care if the bear is more scared of me than I am of him.
Just last night, a bear was spotted in the woods near the intersection of Briggs and Union Mill roads in Mount Laurel. (6ABC) Is this just one bear, or is this multiple bears? Just a few days ago, I reported bear sightings in Winslow Township. Every day since there have been new sightings. The reports have generally progressed northward - Waterford, Evesham, Medford, Mount Laurel - covering a roughly 20 mile stretch. Maybe it just wants to go home?
Either way, if you see a bear, stay away from it. The End.
