ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. — There’s been another black bear sighting in Rockland.
Ramapo Police received the above photo from a resident on Tuesday after sighting the bear on Coe Farm Road in the Village of Montebello.
Also on Tuesday, a video captured a bear approaching the front door of a house on the other side of the river in the Cortlandt Manor.
Last week, a bear sighting was reported in Nyack.
Anyone who may see a bear should stay clear of the animal and refrain from approaching it to take photographs.
Black bear populations are largely concentrated in upstate New York but there are smaller populations elsewhere, including the Hudson Valley, according to the state Department of Environmental Conservation
While black bears are omnivores and largely consume grasses, berries, fruit and insects, they will also eat human food, including bird seed, honey, and corn.
