STREETSBORO, Ohio - Streetsboro police have received a report of a bear sighting.
The animal was spotted in the area of Delores Drive and Kensington Lane.
Police are warning the public to not approach a bear if you see one, and to stay inside.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources and Portage County Wildlife officers have been notified of the sighting.
A spokesperson for the Lake County Metroparks said male bears tend to wander more often between the months of May and August looking to claim new territory and search for mates.
To avoid attracting bears, park rangers recommend keeping your trash inside until pickup day, cleaning up grills after use and putting bird and other animal feeders up higher.
