Info Regarding Bear Sightings in the Community
I understand you all have been seeing a bear in your area recently. I wanted to touch base with you to make sure you are reiterating to residents that this is not a public safety issue; it is a food issue. If all food sources are secure, the bear will no longer have incentive to be in the area. Please review this information from our website: https://www.dgif.virginia.gov/wildlife/bear/becoming-bear-aware/ and make sure that ALL potential food sources such as trash cans, bird feeders, pet food, and outdoor grills are secured and unavailable to this animal. Bears becoming habituated to humans via human negligence in cases such as this are at risk and in danger, since they cannot unlearn this behavior, and sometimes need to be put down due to careless actions of people continuing to leave food out.
If I can be of further assistance, please let me know. Thanks,
