Recent Bear Sightings

We have once again received reports of black bear sightings in the Armonk area.  The bear reportedly ran away rather quickly and was not aggressive.  Please remember that caution should be used when encountering bears and residents should take this opportunity to read the NYS DEC suggestions regarding this indigenous species.  A link is attached below.  Please do not become overly comfortable or complacent.  Please do not feed bears either deliberately or inadvertently.  Please remove food sources that the bear may have access to.  If you are uncertain or uncomfortable when a bear is observed or encountered, call the North Castle Police immediately at either (914) 273-9500 or use 911.
