It is her goal to translate some of the mysterious roman- ticism from our surroundings and pass this on to the viewer.

Becoming bear aware! With a healthy, growing black bear population, bear sightings are becoming common throughout much of Virginia. A highly adaptable and intelligent animal, bears can live close to people. While local residents often do not know bears are living close by, some bears may wander into residential areas due to the smell of food around homes. The most common food attractants are bird feeders, garbage, and pet food; however, outdoor grills, livestock food, compost, fruit trees, and beehives can also attract bears. What should you do if you see a bear? Enjoy and keep a respectful distance! In most cases, the bear will move on quickly. 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. What should I do if a bear is consuming bird seed, gar- bage, pet food, etc., on my property? The best way to encourage the bear not to return is to re- move the food source." Do not store household trash, or anything that smells like food, in vehicles, on porches or decks. Keep your full or empty trash containers secured in a garage, shed or basement. Take your garbage to the dump frequently. If you have a trash collection service, put your trash out the Take your camera fishing There's a lot to pack before you head out for the spring fishing season. Just don't forget the camera to take shots of your catch to submit to the BoatUS Angler 'Catch of the Month' photo contest at which kicks off now and runs through October 31.

Visit for more. Anglers can also check out all of the photos submitted at morning of the pickup, not the night before. Take down your birdfeeder for 3-4 weeks after the bear visits. Consider installing electric fencing, an inexpensive and ex- tremely efficient proven deter- rent to bears, around dumpsters, gardens, beehives, or other potential food sources. If addressed quickly, this situation can be resolved almost immediately after you remove the food source. Sometimes, the bear may return searching for food, but after a few failed attempts to find food, it will leave your property. What do I do if I see a bear cub on my property? Do not try to remove it from the area or "save it". When sensing danger, female bears will typically send her cubs up a tree and leave the area. In such cases, the female will almost always return to gather up the cubs when no people or pets are around. Preventing problems with bears is a shared responsibility between the citizens of Virginia and the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (VDGIF). Always remember that a bear is a wild animal, and that it is detrimental to the bear, as well as illegal in Virginia, to feed a bear under any circum- stances. Feeding bears may cause them to lose their natural distrust of humans, creating situ- ations where bears may become habituated and sometimes ag- gressive towards people. Thus, human and bear safety is the responsibility of all residents of the Commonwealth. You can help manage the Commonwealth's black bear population and Keep Bears Wild. Make sure your property is clear of attractants, communi- cate with your neighbors to resolve community bear con- cerns, and learn about bears, one of the most amazing intelligent wildlife species in Virginia. If you visit outdoor recreation areas in bear country insist that the area supervisors manage their trash properly. If you experience a bear problem after taking appropriate steps of prevention, please notify your VDGIF Regiona! Office. Phone numbers for the regional offices can be found by visiting the Department's website at ut/offices.asp. Living with Bears in Virginia, a video produced by the VDGIF, is available on the Department's website and pro- vides tips for peacefully coex- isting with bears.
