A pair of black bear sightings were reported Saturday in Northern Westchester.
The sightings occurred near the areas of Turkey Mountain at Route 118 and Route 129 and Pines Bridge and Syska roads, Yorktown Police said.
According to the state Department of Environmental Conservation, New York's black bear population is expanding, causing more bear-human interactions.
Black bear populations are largely concentrated in upstate New York but there are smaller populations elsewhere, including the Hudson Valley, according to the DEC.
While black bears are omnivores and largely consume grasses, berries, fruit and insects, they will also eat human food, including bird seed, honey, and corn.
