A mother black bear was spotted in the village of Lake Hallie, along with her three baby cubs.

Experts have a few recommendations to minimize the risk of a bear encounter: make trash cans inaccessible to bears, by bringing them inside at night, or getting a bear-resistant trash can, and most of all, never feed or approach a bear.
