The Dunlap Police Department says it's taken two reports of bear sightings in less than a month.

The first alleged sighting happened about three weeks ago in the area of Cottage Way and Old Highway 8 around 3:00 a.m.

The second alleged sighting happened Sunday night around 10:15 in the McDonough Street area, just about a mile away from the first reported sighting.

Dunlap police say officers were unable to confirm either report.

Police say if you do see a bear, do not approach it and call 911 immediately.
