Wilmington police said on Facebook they have received two reports of bear sightings in the area of Woburn Street between the I-93 overpass and Concord Street.
Officials warned residents to take the necessary precautions stating “residents should remove bird feeders as well as secure their trash barrels” and to avoid approaching the bear should it be seen.
