Conservation Agents Jarad Milligan and Jarrad Jewell reported to the commission on the status of wildlife, Bennett Spring and other issues. Of note was the sighting of a bear, specifically a juvenile, in Laclede County. The agents encouraged community members to not feed wildlife. For more on this story, see Wednesday's LCR.
