The Roseville Police Department received several phone calls Sunday, September 30 reporting bear sightings near South Cirby and Old Auburn roads. There were no injuries to residents or the bear.
Roseville Police started receiving calls at 7:30 a.m. The bear was moving in a northerly direction near the Linda Creek corridor. The last sighting was at 10 p.m. Sunday evening and it is believed the bear is no longer within the city limits.
Dee Dee Gunther with the Roseville Police Department explains what you should do if you encounter a bear.
Gunther has a few preventative measures to reduce your odds of a human bear interaction.
Bear encounters are quite rare in Roseville. If you hear that a bear has been spotted in your neighborhood, bring your pets and pet food inside, and lock your garbage can in your garage until the bear has left the area. For both public safety and the bear’s safety, we want to keep it wild and not encourage it to stay in a populated area.
