Beware of Black Bears

As we move into the summer season black bears enter their breeding season and males become aggressive. If you plan on going to a forest or near a river use a radio or bell to make noise, make your presence known to the bears. If you do encounter a bear back away from the sight slowly while paying attention to your surroundings.
