Suggestions to Prevent Bear Activity in Your Area

As the seasons change, an increase in bear activity is expected in Kentucky. John Hast, bear program coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife said most bear problems center around food. Residents in bear areas may follow these suggestions in order to decrease bear activity where they live: only feed outside pets what they will eat at one sitting and not leave pet food out overnight; remove birdfeeders in spring and summer; keep grills clean and change drip pans frequently; throw food scraps in the trash, not a yard or fire pit; and surround beehives with an electric fence.
