Autumn Madden of Elk Creek, sighted a bear in her front yard in mid-June. This photo was taken from her front porch at about 3 p.m. The deer and fawn were seen later last month in her front yard. The deer and the bear were in about the same area. “I think they’re look for food,” said Madden. “The bear climbed in the back of our truck.” She is the daughter of Suzy and Paxton Madden and has a two-year-old daughter, Makeena.
