USDA Wildlife information regarding bear encounters!

The USDA’s Wildlife Services works closely with Fish and Game to mitigate bear conflicts around the state. We’ve received a significant amount of calls about bear problems around NH, and thought it would be helpful to pass along some information about how residents can prevent conflicts with bears. Prime black bear habitat includes deciduous forests (oaks, maple, beech etc.), wetlands, and riparian (along rivers) zones. The natural areas surrounding your town provide very good habitat for black bears.  Many human-bear conflicts arise when bears frequent properties to access food attractants that are found around homes.  The most common attractants are birdfeeders, unsecured garbage, and compost piles which include food scraps.  Livestock, such as chickens and pigs, can also attract bears when not properly protected. Electric fencing is the most effective way to protect livestock.  In most cases removing the attractant the bear(s) are utilizing eliminates the bear problem.  It is also helpful to harass bears with noise, such as banging pots and pans, or using compressed air horns to scare them away.

The below listed links and youtube videos can assist in mitigating bear encounters!
