BEDFORD CORNERS, N.Y. -- A second bear sighting has been reported near the Bedford-Mount Kisco border.

The new sighting comes from Bedford Corners resident Carla Bird, who spotted a black bear in her yard on the evening of June 6.

"Our bird feeder was almost empty but he still got to it and tried to eat the thistle bird seed," Bird wrote in an email. "Our neighborhood homeowners association warned about the bear earlier that morning, I had just not pulled them in yet."

Bird's residence is near Route 172 and McClain Street, and near the Mount Kisco town line. Police recently announced that an earlier bear sighting was reported within the past week. The previous sighting was on Knowlton Avenue, a near by street that is on the Mount Kisco side of the border.

Bird added that the bear went into a nearby wooded area, and that police told her to just scare the bear away as a response.

Bird shared a pair of photos of the black bear, which are attached to this article.
