There's been another bear sighting in Western New York, this one a big mamma in a Lewiston backyard.

Lewiston police are warning residents to be on the look out.  This female was spotted on Irving Drive just off Lewiston Road near the Niagara Falls Country Club.

Police believe this bear could have cubs nearby and she'd be very aggressive in trying to protect them.

If you come across the bear, stay clear and call police right away.
