Baby Bear Seen Crossing ArrowCreek Parkway Today!

This afternoon a baby bear was in the center divide of E. ArrowCreek Parkway near Sky Horse Trail in our community about 100 yards before the Gatehouse. It was truly a baby brown fuzzy bear only weighing about 60 pounds or so. Mama was not seen near the baby. The baby cub walked in the median 10 or 15 yards. When the three cars stopped, the cub looked over his shoulder and then crossed over the road towards backyards of houses on the inside of the circle parkway. The incident was reported at the Gatehouse on the way out of our community. We don’t know what happened next.

If you do see the baby bear, please don’t try to feed it or pet it. Please call Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) at (775)688-1500 or 688-BEAR (2327)

Please pay attention to your speed on the parkway so you can stop quickly if an animal or child pops out of nowhere to dart across the road.
