The RCMP in New Wes Valley is warning people in Bonavista North that there has been a polar bear sighting in the Greenspond area.

"Due to the pack ice being just off our shores, it is quite possible that there are bears wandering in the area. Please be aware of your surroundings," a news release from the RCMP states.
