Black Bear Tips
Black bears have emerged from winter dens and are entering their most active period of the year in search of food and mates, which makes encounters with humans in populated areas more likely. Even though overall bear sightings and encounters are declining again
this year, New Jersey residents, particularly those living in “bear country’’ in northwest New Jersey, are advised to take a few simple precautions this spring to reduce the risk of potential encounters.
