VACAVILLE (CBS13) – Fish and wildlife officials are investigating another reported bear sighting in Vacaville on Thursday.

The department says it’s possible it’s the same bear that was spotted in the city earlier this week – but they can’t say for sure, since the animals can travel up to 20 miles per day.
