Black Bear Spotted in Manchester Township Today

The bear was spotted in the Roosevelt City section of the township on Wednesday morning and did not cause any significant disturbances, Captain Lisa Parker said

“Manchester Township Police and the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife responded and were able to move the bear into the boundaries of the Pasadena Wildlife Management Area, a tract of preserved land located in Ocean and Burlington counties,” Parker added

According to the Manchester Patch:

Black bears are wary of people by nature. But if the bear does wander back into any residential areas, Manchester police are asking residents to heed safety tips provided by the state Division of Fish and Wildlife website at (www.state.nj.us/dep/fgw/bearfacts_safetytips.htm):

Here are some tips in the event of a confrontation with a black bear:

·  Never feed or approach a bear!

·  Remain calm

·  Make the bear aware of your presence by speaking in an assertive voice, singing, clapping your hands, or making other noises.
