CLINCH VALLEY TIMES St. Paul, Va. Thursday, April 20, 2017 Page 7 Bear aware - what you do really matters! Virginia is home to a healthy population of black bears - one of our biggest conservation success sto- ries. Black bears are found almost everywhere throughout the Commonwealth, so it is Common for people to live, work and play in bear country. It is incredibly important for people to learn the facts about black bears and to know what they can do to prevent con- flicts. This way, we can make sure we keep bears wild and coexist for gener- ations to come. To keep bears wild, what YOU do really matters. A highly adaptable and intelligent animal, bears can liue close to people. While local residents often do not know bears are liv- ing close by, some bears may wander into residen- tial areas due to the smell of food around homes. The most common food attrac- tants are birdfeeders, garbage, and pet food; however, outdoor grills, livestock food, compost, fruit trees, and beehives will also attract bears. With some simple steps, you can reduce the chances of bears making repeated visits to your neighborhood or property. Secure your garbage in bear resistant trash cans or store it in a secure building. Take down bird feeders if a bear is in the area. Don't put meat scraps in your compost pile. Don't leave pet food outdoors. Keep your grill clean. Make sure your neigh- bors are following the same recommendations. Install electric fenc- ing, an inexpensive and extremely efficient proven deterrent to bears, around dumpsters, gardens, fruit trees, beehives, or other potential food sources. After a few failed attempts to find food around homes, bears will usually leave the area in search of natural wild foods, In almost all cases, a black bear will detect you and leave the area before being noticed. However, if you do encounter a bear, here are some suggestions: Never run from a bear. Running could prompt the bear to chase• If in a group, stay together and make sure that your dog stays leashed. Enjoy and keep a respectful distance! If a bear is up a tree on or near your property, give it space. Do not approach, and bring your pets inside to provide the bear a clear path to leave your property. Once females leave If thebearhasn't seen their dens with 4 to 5- you, calmly leave the area, month-old cubs, they will while making a bit of noise typically travel in close so the bear will not be sur- groups unless, something prised by you. makes the female nervous. If the bear has seen you, back away slowly while facing the bear. Speaking softly may also let the bear know you mean no harm. What do I do if I see a bear cub on my proPerty? • Until April/May, sows with cubs are typically in dens. Most small bears people see in early spring are not actual "baby bears" but yearlings (>12 months old). They do not need their mothers to survive. If a small yearling is on your property, the worst thing you can do is feed the bear. Yearling§ need to learn how to find natural foods and not become food cOnditioned or habituated to humans. If you see a very small cub, do not try to remove it from the area or "save it." When sensing danger, a female bear will typically send her cub(s) up a tree and leave the area. In such cases, the female will almost always under any circumstances. Even allowing a bear to feed on trash or birdseed is illegal. You can help man-, age the Commonwealth'g;, black bear population and Keep Bears Wild. iii • If you experience a bear: problem after taking appro- priate steps of prevention¢? please call the Wildlife Conflict Helpline at (855) 571-9003. i;i Please visiil return to gather up the cub(s) when no people or pets are around, usually after dark.
