The dos and don'ts if you see a black bear

An adult black bear can weigh anywhere between 150 and 700 pounds. They are most active in the early morning and late evening. The ODNR recommends bear-proofing your backyard following several steps.

  • Remove bird feeders.
  • Store garbage in a secure container.
  • Keep pet food inside.
  • Clean out the grease traps after grilling.
  • Place electric fencing around beehives.
  • Pick fruit from berry bushes.

If you encounter a bear, remain calm. Bears typically do not attack as long as the bear is given space and not cornered.
