Several bears have been spotted in Vernon in the last couple days.

A large bear on the Grey Canal Trail near the Foothills was reported Thursday morning.

That followed the sighting of two bear cubs on East Vernon Road Wednesday evening. The cubs were spotted near the creek behind BX Elementary, which was full of kids and parents at the time during a welcome-back barbecue.
