On Thursday morning, a bear appeared on Via Bandolera in the Rancho Grande Area of Arroyo Grande. A resident shot video of the animal crossing the street.
On Tuesday, witnesses saw a bear on Printz Road in rural Arroyo Grande. Last week, elementary school students spotted a bear walking around Nipomo Regional Park next to a baseball field.
Arroyo Grande police are investigating but cannot confirm whether the same bear made each of the appearances. Officials say more frequent bear sightings may occur in the coming months due to the ongoing drought.
Park rangers remind residents to keep their trashcans secure.
