College Park residents have been reporting bear sightings this week.

According to the OPD, a young black bear was indeed seen near Dartmouth Park, early Tuesday morning. Helicopters tracked the bear as it made its way southward through the neighborhood. The bear has been reported to Florida Fish and Wildlife.

A bear was spotted in the same area last year on May 13, which we wrote about HERE, complete with an FAQ bear fact sheet from Florida Fish and Wildlife.
