Keeping bears at bay

By

Residents in Clay County are on the lookout for two black bears that are roaming the neighborhood. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission public information Coordinator Karen Parker says in order for the bears to go back to where they came from residents must stop making it easy for the bears to find their next meal. Residents must keep in mind that once bears get a hold of unnatural food sources such as pet food, or garbage, it puts the animals at increased risk because of traffic or poaching. If the bear is posing a threat to your safety or property please report it to the FWC at 888-404-FWCC (3922).
