caption

WEEKEND. DETAILS IN JUST A LITTLE BIT. >>> THE LATEST BEAR SIGHTING IN NEW JERSEY HAPPENED IN MORRIS COUNTY AND IT INVOLVED A MAMA BEAR PROTECTING HER CUBS VERSUS THE DOG, DOING THE SAME FOR ITS HOME. >> Reporter: YOU KNOW, DOGS PROTECT THEIR BACKYARDS AND MAMA BEARS PROTECT THEIR BABIES. THOSE BEARS HAVE NO BOUNDARIES, BUT TO THIS ONE NEIGHBORHOOD, ESPECIALLY ALONG SCOTT STREET, THE NEIGHBORS ARE DOING WHATEVER THEY CAN TO MAKE SURE THAT THERE ARE NO BEAR INCIDENTS. >> Reporter: THIS WAS SUNDAY MORNING. A MAMA BEAR AND TWO CUBS. THE WHOLE NEIGHBORHOOD HAS A SYSTEM. >> WHEN WE SEE BEARS, BECAUSE IT IS SUCH A FREQUENT OCCURRENCE, THE PEOPLE OF THE STREET WILL TEXT US AND SAY BY THE WAY, THE BEARS ARE BACK IN THE AND EVERYBODY STARTS COMMUNICATING, DON'T LET THE DOGS OUT. >> Reporter: THEY WERE ON VACATION BUT COULD NOT GET THE WARNING TO THEIR PET SITTER IN TIME AND THE DOGS HAD TO GO OUT. >> AT THE POINT THEY WERE LET OUT, THE BEARS WERE OUT OF SIGHT IN MY YARD BEHIND MY SHED.AND WHEN THE DOGS WERE LET OUT IT WAS TOO LATE.

>> Reporter: THE MOTHER BEAR WENT AFTER ROSIE, LEAVING HER WITH INJURIES SHE HAD TO HAVE STITCHED. THEY CONTACTED ANIMAL CONTROL SO THAT EVERYONE WAS ON THE SAME PAGE. THERE HOPING THAT HOMEOWNERS AND AGENCIES MIGHT TRY TO FIND A WAY FOR WILDLIFE AND PEOPLE TO HAVE THE PLACE AND SPACE THEY NEED WITHOUT PUTTING ANY LIVES IN DANGER. WE WILL HAVE MORE ON HIS THOUGHTS ABOUT THAT COMING UP AT 5:30. THEY ARE PROUD TO SAY THAT ROSIE AND RILEY ARE FINE. THEY ARE GRATEFUL TO THEIR FAMILY MEMBER THAT WAS THERE. >> ROSIE IS ABSOLUTELY FINE. I CAN'T BELIEVE I GOT CHOKED UP. >> Reporter: YES, ROSIE IS DOING WELL. BUTLER POLICE ALSO HAVE PUT OUT THE WARNING IN THE AREA BECAUSE WE HEARD STORIES ABOUT THE BEARS SOMETIMES FOLLOWING THE MAIL CARRIERS IN GETTING A MEAL OFF OF SOMEONE'S GARDEN. THE MOST THEY CAN DO .
