If residents see or encounter a bear in Upper Allen Township , police advise the public to:

  • Notify police immediately by calling (717)¬†238-9676 so they can monitor the area and reduce the risk to the surrounding residents.
  • Do not offer any food to the bear
  • Move¬† trash containers and bird feeders inside, so as not to attract bears
