Police are warning neighbors about bears after one was spotted roaming through a yard in Hamburg. 

Hamburg police shared a photo of a bear walking through a neighbor's yard Thursday evening off of Rogers Road.

Police say it's not too uncommon to see bears in the Hamburg area. Bears are usually attracted to food and garbage on neighbors' properties. 

If you do see a bear, Hamburg Police ask you to keep your distance and call (716) 648-5111, extension 0.
