Two Black Bears Have Been Spotted in Sandy Creek

Posted: Updated:

Some residents in the Sandy Creek area had some uninvited guests this week.

Ann Qualls heard her dogs barking and came outside to find two black bears in her neighbor's yard.

Apparently the bears climbed over a fence and were treed by her dogs around 10am Tuesday Morning. Ann called 9-1-1 and was transferred to the FWC who advised her to simply leave the bears alone and let them leave on there own.

Residents say this isn't the first bear sighting in the Sandy Creek area this week and want to warn others of the bears' presence.
