Coyote and Bear Sightings
April 26, 2019
The Village office has received reports of a coyote sighting this week near Sprucewood Drive and a bear sighting today in the vicinity of Newman/Berkley Streets in Applewood Acres subdivision.
These animals are attracted by food, and anything that smells like food, so please keep all food sources such a bird feeders, garbage cans, barbecues, and pet food stored away in a secure location. Parents should also remember to keep a close eye on children that are playing near the wooded areas.
