Bears are showing up again.

With winter around the corner the bear activity is going to become more apparent. Many NC residents are stating they are seeing bears near their homes. Some tips to help. Applies to all wild life.

Do not try to spook a bear. Do not feed the bears. Keep an eye on small pets, and don’t leave food out for them. Bears are much more aggressive this time of year and if you see a small one, know that a parent is near by.

Friend who lives near HR 30 miles away, saw two large black bears in his yard. Said they were each about 4-500 pounds. We know they are in the area and just wanted to remind those who live there or are coming to visit.
