RAPIDS — A bear mother and cub were reportedly spotted Tuesday evening along Rapids Road.

It is the second reported bear sighting in East Niagara this spring. One was spotted — and photographed — March 23 on Day Road just north of Slayton Settlement Road in the Town of Lockport.

There were several bear spottings in Western New York in 2014 including one in Pendleton, but Tuesday's is the first reported sighting involving a mother and cub.

ENP Columnist Bob Confer says that black bears are not to be feared.

"Despite their size, teeth and claws they are relatively docile. Black bear attacks are extremely rare," Confer said in a column from August.

A request for more information about Tuesday night's sighting has not yet yielded more details. East Niagara Post would like to talk to anyone who may have seen the pair of bears or gotten photos.
