bears at home in cape coral

Authorities in Cape Coral say they have received several calls regarding bear sightings — including one spotted in a canal behind a home. The bear was seen hanging out on a dock behind a vacant home on 11th Terrace before taking a dip. “With it being a residential area, you wouldn’t think about a bear being out here being on a sea wall,” said Lena Lura, who spotted the bear. Police say the bear was last seen in the area of SE 24th Avenue/Viscaya Parkway, heading east into North Fort Myers. The police department says it has received several calls regarding this specific bear and bear sightings in general along Del Prado Boulevard. The FWC is advising Southwest Florida residents to keep the trash in as close to pick up time as possible and keep pet food and bird feeders inside.
