 A black bear has been spotted in Jo Daviess County, again. Back in May, a homeowner photographed a black bear raiding a bird feeder near Stockton, Ill. Then, what was believed to be the same bear was seen in other parts of northern Illinois, including Ogle County.

Now, the Jo Daviess Sheriff's Office says it has received several reports indicating the bear is back. In fact, officers believe there are two.

The animals are being tracked by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources and officials say there is no cause for alarm. As long as you don't feed them or approach them, they are considered "harmless".
