You better hide your picnic baskets.


Especially if you're in Winslow Township, as sightings of bears was reported on two separate occasions on the same day.


According to 6ABC, 'The first sighting was reported along Wharton Avenue in the Elm section on Wednesday morning.

The second sighting, which was confirmed by police, was around 4:00 p.m. in the Waterford Works section of the township.'


Of course, it's that time of year to occasionally see a bear around here, but it doesn't hurt to be prepared.


Authorities urge you to not approach the animal if you spot it, store all your garbage in containers with tight fitting lids, and wash garbage containers with disinfectant solution regularly to remove odors.  These are all basic things, but could go a long way to keep 'Yogi' from knocking on your door!
