It's been a while since any bear sitings have been reported in the Albany area. That all changed earlier, Friday June 22, 2012, about 8:00 a.m.

In a story that I saw on CBS 6, a bear and cubs have been seen in the area of 36 Middlesex Road in East Greenbush. There have apparently been some other sitings this week in the Was Greenbush, Schodack areas. Officials seem to believe that it's a mama bear raveling with her cubs.

The last time that we had bear sitings was about three weeks ago. It was almost a daily siting.
