[ATTENTION] Bear Sighted on August 16!!

Dear International Students at School of Science,

Wild bears have been seen around the campus recently.

Latest Sighting:
Near vending machines in front of Tohoku University CO-OP, Aobayama-Kita campus
* The bear was about a middle-seized dog and was walking up the slope near Mathematics Building.

Sighted by: Tohoku University student
When: 9:20 pm on Saturday, August 16, 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.
