GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. — Greensboro police are currently working with the Guilford County Animal Control to find two bears spotted in the Westover Drive and Wendover Avenue area Thursday morning.

Someone reported seeing the bears, possibly a mother and a cub, around 7:15 a.m.

Officers say they have notified schools in the area and are helping each school while students continue to arrive.

If you see the bear, call the Greensboro Police Department.

“Stay away from the animal and do not provoke it or entice it with food. If you are in a vehicle and the bear is on the roadway or attempting to cross the roadway, allow it to do so safely,” GPD said in a news release.
