The bear alert issued for Nelson late last week remains in effect Monday.
“We are urging people to be extra vigilant with their garbage,” said special Const. Terry Kidd of the Nelson Police Department.
A black bear, first spotted last week in lower Rosemount near Lakeview Crescent, was noticed again over the weekend.
“This bear seems to have a pretty wide range,” said special Const. Kidd on Monday morning.
The initial release from the NPD on Friday stated, “The NPD would like to remind the public that this is the time for bears to be looking for food and to ensure that garbage, compost, and waste products are disposed of in a secure manner to avoid any possible confrontations with wildlife.”
