  • HE WAS CUTE… PEERING OUT FROM BETWEEN LIMBS AND LEAVES IN A TREE ON COONDOG LANE NEAR MELBOURNE.. BUT THE YOUNG BLACK BEAR DISCOVERED UP A TREE ON JEFF MOSER’S PROPERTY IS THE SIGN OF NATURAL FOOD SHORTAGES THIS YEAR.. THE DRY WEATHER HAS LIMITED THE AMOUNT OF BERRIES, FRUITS, AND CERTAIN VEGETATION THAT MAKE UP A BEAR’S DIET. BEARS ARE BECOMING LESS TIMID IN SEEKING NEW FOOD SOURCES… AND THEY ARE NOT SHY WHEN IT COMES TO RANSACKING GARDENS, TRASH CANS, SQUIRREL FEEDERS, AND DEER FEEDERS IN RESIDENTIAL AREAS. TO KEEP BEARS AWAY FROM YOUR PROPERTY, A TIP FROM THE ARKANSANS GAME AND FISH COMMISSION IS TO LIMIT THE FOOD SOURCES ON YOUR PROPERTY. IF A BEAR DISCOVERS HIS TREATS ARE NO LONGER EASY TO FIND AT YOUR PLACE, HE WILL MOVE ON. BE MINDFUL OF CERTAIN LEGALITIES INVOLVING THE FEEDING OF BEARS.. CHECK OUT THE REGULATIONS AT WWW.AGFC.COM/BEARS
