LAKELAND (FOX 13) -

There's a bear alert for parts of Polk County.

Florida Fish and Wildlife has been getting a lot of calls about black bears in the Lake Wales Ridge area.

Bears have been spotted digging through trash cans and bird feeders. There are also reports of bears taking chickens from the area.

The best way to keep bears away is by securing your garbage and waiting until the morning of garbage pickup to take your cans to the curb.
