There are signs that bears are emerging from hibernation earlier than usual. As our region has hit spring like temperatures. Northern Bear Aware has noticed bear activity in the city. Bears typically hibernate for a few more weeks, however the warm temperatures and un-natural food attractants have forced some bears to emerge from their dens and looking for food. According to Northern Bear Aware with no natural food yet in the forest, some have come into the city raiding garbage cans and bird feeders.
