HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Residents of several Huntington neighborhoods are on edge following recent bear sightings.
Media outlets report that a least one black bear has been seen in neighborhoods off Norway Road.
Nathan Bowen works at Dixon Electrical Systems & Contracting Inc. He says workers found bear paw prints on a trash bin last week.
Kim Vincent says she found a bear paw print on her front porch.
Glenna Hensley likes to work in her flower garden. But she says the bear sightings have made her apprehensive.
Black bear sightings aren't unusual in West Virginia. But they're uncommon in Huntington.
The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources says June and July are peak times for bears to be on the move.
