EDGAR, Wis. (WAOW) -

Residents of a small Marathon County village have been reporting sightings of a bear.

Edgar Police Department reported receiving several calls. They say people should not leave out bird feeders overnight. 

Police are hoping it will move along.

They ask anyone who sees the bear to call the USDA-Wildlife at 800-228-1368. 

The department has jokingly named him "Bert the Bear."
