A reader alerted me to the possibility of a bear lurking about Southborough. It wouldn’t be the first time we had a bear roam through.
The message explained:
A neighbor saw the bear about a month ago on our street, and it just so happened that the next day, my bird feeder was bent and my feeder on the ground.
I waited about two weeks, put it back together, started to feed the birds again without incident..until this morning…[see photo above]
As I have posted in the past, outdoor food sources can attract bears to your yard. So you may want to reconsider the bird feeders.
Have you sighted a bear in town or seen signs of one in your yard? Post a comment below.
Feeling nostalgic? Here are some posts on past bear sightings in Southborough from 2011:
