PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) – Video showed a black bear wandering in Penn Hills Tuesday afternoon.
The video taken by a Facebook user shows the small black bear running behind a fence near the McDonalds on Frankstown Road.
If a person comes face to face with a bear, the PA Game Commission says they should;
“Try and stay calm and slowly back away, you don’t want to make eye contact or turn your back and run.”
You can prevent a bear from coming onto your property by making sure there are not any food sources for the animal.
“Make sure you clean up a little bit, get the bird feeders out, and make sure the garbage isn’t out,” Game Warden Dan Puhala told KDKA Radio.
