Bear sighting prompts warning for homeowners to hide food

Bears range far and wide looking for food, which appears to now include a front porch in Smithfield, according to two area residents.
Ken Potts reports that his wife saw a bear on their stoop at approximately 9:15 p.m. on May 11, where it was apparently interested in eating the cat food left there. The animal ran off when the porch light went on and the door opened.
Potts called his neighbor and friend, Danny Stivers, over, and he photographed the damp paw prints left on the dry wooden porch.
