Black Bears are on the move!


Black Bears are on the move! Summertime brings on increased activity in the life of bears for two main reasons:
🚩 Mid-summer is breeding season, and male bears roam larger areas than normal in search of suitable mates. 

🚩 Cubs born the previous year are now 17-18 months old, leaving their mom in search of a new home range. Females tend to stay close to where they were born, but males may wander up to 100 miles or more in search of a home range not already occupied by a resident male.
