The bears are waking up

Local

April 1st is the deadline the DEC is pushing to put away your bird feeders.  The bears will be coming out of their dens over the next few weeks and will wake up hungry.

It’s been four to five months since they had their last meal and your garbage can is full of all sorts of goodies the bears want to eat.

If you see a bear in your backyard, its ok to take its picture but the DEC says do it from inside your home.
