[ATTENTION] Bear Sighted on June. 17!!

Dear International Students at School of Science,

Wild bears have been seen around the campus recently.
Check the Bear Sighting map here:

Latest Sighting:
Near the Cafeteria "Keyaki Dining", west of the buildings of Applied Chemistry/ Chemical Engineering/ Biomolecular Engineering, Aobayama campus (see the map above)
Sighted by: Tohoku University student
When: 8:40 pm on Wednesday, June 17, 2014

- NOT to go outside alone in the dusk and dawn.
- To make noise when you walk through the map above, such as to carry bear bells, or sing,
whistle or talk.
(these actions will alert bears to your presence, and give them a chance to avoid you)
- NOT to leave your garbage outside, even at the collection spot.
Make sure to put them out after the sun rise. Odors may attract hungry bears.
