Bears seen on Redlands hill; residents urged to take caution

Two bears were spotted in this part of Redlands, officials say.

Two bears were seen on a hillside in Redlands, prompting officials Wednesday night to warn residents to take precautions when outdoors.

The bears were seen Wednesday morning by a Fontana Police Department helicopter crew near Wabash Avenue and Reservoir Road north of 10 Freeway, authorities said.

Bears have occasionally been seen in the city's hillside areas, but there have been no reports of attacks, according to the Redlands Police Department.

Police reminded residents to stay on trails if they plan to hike in the area and to keep pets on leashes.
