On Sunday, May 15, 2022, a large black bear was sighted in the neighborhood on the Winter Springs side around the large pond on Biscaye, as well as walking along Biscayne & Kissimmee, and climbing over fences between backyards. Seminole County Animal Control and FL Fish and Wildlife have been notified and are working to locate the bear, if they haven’t already done so. Please be mindful of our natural wildlife and take appropriate precautions when outside (including yourself, children, and pets). Also, please secure your garbage cans and eliminate any food sources that would attract the bear to your house like outdoor pet food.
