A female bear and her cubs are getting a lot of attention in Adel.

The bears were spotted on a city street in the city Monday.

According to the Georgia Wildlife Rescue Association, black bears are common in North Georgia, but not in South Georgia.

The Georgia DNR, City of Adel Animal Control and Adel police are monitoring the bears.

Also according to GWRA, black bears are not naturally aggressive, but the mother would probably react to protect her cubs if she believes they are in danger.

If you see the bears, do not approach them; contact authorities immediately.
