Avoid a ‘grizzly’ encounter

Cartoon/Ed Turner

Region – Living in this area, it is not uncommon to see wildlife such as deer, foxes or coyotes. What is unusual is to see a black bear. But recently there have been various sightings of them in local communities including Marlborough, Northborough, Southborough and Upton.

While it certainly is exciting (and a bit nerve-wracking) to see a bear, officials stress that it is not cause for alarm. Rather, they say, just use common sense and do not leave out items that bears will be attracted to, such as open garbage cans or low bird feeders. Stay as far away as possible and do not try to track or follow him. Just leave him be – he will find his way back to his own home in due time.
