This morning around 10:30, there were reports of a bear sighting near 17th & Ferdinand, and motorcycle officers were dispatched to search southward along the Chief Sealth Trail from about 5000 Beacon Avenue.
If this turns out to be the same bear that made the news up north earlier this week, that bear really gets around!
12:45 Update: The P-I adds that Department of Fish and Wildlife Sgt. Kim Chandler doubts the credibility of the reported sighting and that “wildlife agents will not be responding unless additional, more credible reports are received.”
1:30 Update: The Weekly on the false bear alarm.
2:15 Update: The P-I now has pictures of the P-Patch tracks.
