Black Bear Sighting in El Dorado Springs

News from the El Dorado Spring Police Department

Over the past few weeks, the El Dorado Police Department has received reports of Bear sightings in El Dorado Springs, first on the 1000-1100 blocks of East Patricia Street, and today on the 800 blocks of North Main and North Jackson Streets in El Dorado Springs.  

Most likely from the descriptions given this is a young bear looking for a territory to call its own. Bears are wild animals and will not be removed by the El Dorada Spring Police Department.

If you see a bear, leave it alone! Do not approach it. Make sure it has an escape route and do not attempt to feed the bear.
