Another black bear sighting in Harford County was reported in the Darlington area Friday afternoon.

This time the bear was seen at the home of Cal and Pat Gilbert in the 1900 block of Nobles Mill Road around 1 p.m.

Pat Gilbert got several sharp photos of the bruin, who appears to have found a few snacks on his visit to their home, which is near Deer Creek.

The latest sighting was the third since last Wednesday, when a black bear was seen in the Webster Village area. A bear was also seen at a home in Susquehanna State Park on Thursday morning, a few miles east of where Friday's sighting was.

The bear photographed by Pat Gilbert Friday is very similar in appearance to the one photographed near Quail Way in Webster Village last Wednesday.

No other bear sightings have been reported since Friday.
