Clinton is in Black Bear country and it is not uncommon and perfectly normal for them to wander through parts of Clinton at this time of the year.

Recently there have been renewed sightings of Black Bear in and around the Town. If you see a Black Bear in Clinton leave it alone and please report its location to us at 908-735-8611 so the Police Department can keep track of its travels through the Town.

Otherwise there is no other action that you should take or necessary other than to make sure that your trash recepticles properly located and secured and to not feed wildlife other than wild birds in feeders that are not accessible to a bear.
