Hey, hey, Boo-Boo.

Halfmoon has reports of bear sightings in the area. There a number of reasons this matters.

1) It must almost be Spring. I don't know much about bears, but I know they hibernate during the Winter. If they're awake, it must be at least Spring.

2) The Capitol Region is being invaded by wild animals. Buffalo in Bethlehem, and now bears in Halfmoon. I'd be on the look out for cougars in Clifton Park and jackalope's in Johnstown as well.

Residents have been asked to be on the lookout and take down any feeders they might have, and to refrain from letting pets be outside, reports CBS6. They also ask to make sure there is no food or garbage on your lawns, and while that too could attract a bear, this may just be the town asking for some spring cleaning.

The one thing I did notice not included on the list was pic-a-nic baskets. Whatever you do, DO NOT have a pic-a-nic basket in Halfmoon. Every bit of research I've ever done on bears has shown a clear linkage between pic-a-nic baskets and bear related crimes.
