Black Bear – 4/17/24

Observer: Rob

Observation Date: 4/17/24

Observation Time: 11:35 pm

Observation Location: back yard on Norwood Street

Common Name: American Black Bear

Scientific Name: Ursus Americanus

Comments: Black bears are hungry when they emerge from hibernation in spring, and there is not much to eat in the natural environment. That’s why it is important to secure bird feeders and garbage cans. Interactions between humans and bears often end badly for one or the other or both.

Black bears have better eyesight and hearing than humans. Their keenest sense is their sense of smell, which is about seven times more sensitive than a domestic dog’s.
