Wildlife sightings continue to increase, this time in Pleasant Valley neighborhood

COLORADO SPRINGS - It is getting warmer outside, which means more people are seeing wildlife venturing into our neck of the woods. 

On Tuesday morning, at around 6:15 a.m., a bobcat was seen crossing 31st Street in the Pleasant Valley neighborhood. The bobcat traveled down Westmoor street towards Westmoor Park. 

 

Over the last few days, bears have been seen in different areas of Colorado chowing down after months of hibernation. 

Colorado Parks and Wildlife is asking that you not feed these animals and to secure your trash cans. 

If wildlife continues to cause problems in heavily populated areas, they run a risk of being euthanized. 

For instance, bears are allowed two strikes before being killed. They are tagged after their first venture into a town or city.
