If you’re in Wesley Chapel or Land O’ Lakes it is possible you may have spotted black bears in or near your neighborhood. Do NOT feed these bears.

Officials with Florida Fish and Wildlife believe the bears may have wandered down from the Chassahowitzka National Refuge in Citrus County.

The bears have scurried away quickly once spotted. They are not known to be aggressive unless they’ve been fed, so please, do not feed them.
