Bear Cub Spotted on Nature Trail 9/6/18
Posted on 09/06/2018
Galway Groundskeeper Jeff Stangle spotted a bear cub on the nature trail yesterday morning, Thursday, September 6, 2018. We are not sure if the bear wanted to attend the first day of school or was simply enjoying the trails Alex Malinowski recently restored.

Galway Central School District’s School Resource Officer John Carey called the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, who then checked the trails for signs of the bear.

The bear sighting, coupled with the heat and humidity conditions, led the district to take precautions and keep students and staff inside on Thursday.

Officer Carey has checked the checked the trail several times and said the bear is “long gone,” and has not been seen since. We will continue to monitor the nature trails, but our students will be enjoying the outdoors today, Friday, September 7, 2018.
