What To Do If You Encounter a Bear

According the the Department of Environment Conservation, the bear population is increasing in New York--and those in Vestal are seeing that first hand.
 
Another sighting of a bear in--this time in the woods off the Rail Trail. A bear was also seen in a tree in Vestal on Friday--where it stayed apparently sleeping for hours. No reports so far of any damage or aggressive behavior from the animal. So what should you do if you see the bear? Leave it alone. Vestal police say that although the bear may seem harmless--it is still a wild animal and residents should go inside and stay away from it.
