Here’s a note posted to the Richmond Facebook Group.
“There has been an adult male bear in the woods, back of the houses at Ottawa and Fowler Streets. It may be interested in the bee hives there but there is now an electric fence around the hives which should deter it once it’s snout has been zapped. It has also pulled down a bird feeder. It was seen about 3 days ago and has been seen today as well (Tuesday). Bear sightings do happen around Richmond every year so it likely will leave soon.”
A bear (maybe the same one) was spotted near South Carleton High School and Richmond Public School earlier this week.
