TOMAH, Wis. (WEAU) -- The Tomah Police Department is warning the public of bear sightings.

The department posted DNR tips to its Facebook Page Friday morning on what to do if you come across a bear. The DNR says nearly all human-bear conflicts are a result of the animals’ search for food.

They say if you would like to report problems with bears to the USDA-Wildlife Services, you can contact them at (920) 324-4514.
