Numerous Bear Sightings In Amador And Calaveras

Numerous Bear Sightings In Amador And Calaveras 

A number of bear sightings have been reported over the past few weeks throughout Amador and Calaveras Counties. Most have been the usual “bear in the garbage” sightings. Fish and Wildlife officials have a series of tips to help prevent bear problems on your property. First off, never feed bears! Report any instance of bears being fed or getting into human food. Next place trash in bear-proof containers. Don’t leave pet food outside or make bird feeders accessible to bears. If you have a vacation home, remove food when not occupied and don’t leave food in cars. Officials also say if you come in contact with a bear, to be aggressive with them, but to use caution while scaring visiting bears away. Black bears are very common in our area and have become use to humans and no longer have a strong fear of us. Fish and Wildlife authorities say to be responsible and to take the proper actions and precautions when dealing with any wildlife.
