The Harrison Police Department has advised that it has received reports of a bear sighting on Mastercard property, which is located just North of our 2000W Campus. It is recommended that employees remain close to the building and refrain from using the jogging paths or walking in remote areas of the Campus for the rest of the afternoon.

The following tips and other information relating to encounters with black bears may be found at

* If a black bear is visible, but not close, alter your route so that you will move away from its area.
* If a black bear approaches, do not run. Remain calm, continue facing the bear and slowly back away. If the bear continues to approach, try to group together and pick up small children. Try to scare the bear away by shouting and acting aggressively.
* If a black bear attacks, it is suggested to fight back using everything in your power fists, sticks, rocks, and E.P.A. registered bear pepper spray.

Have a good holiday weekend.
