Durham Regional Police have issued a warning to residents in Ajax after a bear was spotted early Sunday morning. Two calls came in around 3:30am reporting a spotting of the bear near Audley Rd. N. and Rossland Rd. E., then again on Arfield Av., which is in a residential neighbourhood. Although bears usually avoid humans, they do occasionally migrate to rural and even urban areas to get food. Bear attacks are rare, but residents are advised not to approach the bear if spotted, and to put away outdoor pet food and bird feeders during the spring; also to keep garbage indoors until the morning of scheduled pickup.
