Black Bear Sightings
Santa Barbara - April 6th, 2012
During the moring hours of April 6, 2012, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department has received several calls of a black bear in the area of Sycamore Canyon Road and Cold Springs Road.
The Sheriff's Department is working with Fish and Game to locate and deal with the bear. Additionally, Cold Springs School has been notified of the sightings and will take appropriate actions to make sure their students are safe.
We are asking if you see a bear or any potentially dangerous wild animal to call the Sheriff's Department. Do not attempt to scare the animal or frighten it away. If left alone, these animals usually leave the area on their own.
