WASHINGTON, D.C. (WUSA) Police have been searching for bears in Woodbridge. Prince William County say on September 16th at 8:16 a.m., they sent officers out to the 2900 block of Marsala Ct in Woodbridge for a reported bear sighting.
Police say the caller saw a mother bear and her cub, but, lucky for the bears, the cops were unable to find them.
Here's what the Police Department's Animal Control Bureau says you should do if you think bears are around:
• Remove food sources that might attract hungry bears. This includes bird feeders, garbage, pet food, outdoor grills, livestock food, compost, fruit trees and beehives.
