Bear Watch

KENT — Lakeville Journal photographer Lans Christensen had a visit at his home in Kent on Monday night, March 23, from what appears to be a large bear, based on the animal’s 10-inch footprint. The bears have emerged from hibernation throughout the region and have not been practicing social distancing; they have stopped in to visit several homes in The Lakeville Journal coverage area. Anyone who still has bird feeders in their yard might want to bring them in to keep them from becoming bear feeders.
