Don't Panic Despite last week's sight- ing of a black bear near Manchester, residents are being urged not to panic. The black bear is a mag- nificent example of wildlife and a reminder of the untamed portion of Georgia. The Georgia Department of Natural Resources, W'fldlife Resources Division (WRD) encourages residents to edu- cate themselves about bears, theirhabits and how they can be kept out of populated areas. "In its natural setting, such as in swamps and forest- ed areas, a black bear sight- ing is something that few peo- ple will ever forget. However, as human popula- tions grow and expand into areas traditionany inhabited by bears, or as bears wander into human territory in search of food, conflicts may arise and bears become seen as a threat or a nuisance," says WRD Assistant Chief of Game Management Dan Forster. "Education about bears can help prevent such conflicts from occurring." Prior to the eighteenth century bears were common in Georgia However, habitat loss and overall degradation of habitat due to human development contributed to a serious population decline. Thanks to sound wildlife management practices bears have recovered to the pres- ent population of more than 2,000 in Georgia. Black bears typically can be found in three distinct regions in the state, the North Georgia mountains, the Ocmulgee River drainage system in central part of the state and the Okefenokee Swamp in the southeast. However, once spring arrives bears often are found far from these tradi- tional locations. Young male bears on their own for the first time often will roam large areas until they estab- lish their own territory and ag bears willroam out of their traditional areas in search of food, especially when their natural diet sources are scarce. A bear's diet consists of whatever is readily avagable at that time of year, and varies according to the part of the state in which the bear lives. The majority of their natural diet consists of berries, fruits, acorns, grasses and animal matter, including insects. However, when hous- es, cans or recreation areas are located within range, bears are naturally attracted to the smelb associated with cooking and garbage dispos- al. Other non-natural attrac- tants include pet food, bird- seed, suet, compost piles, ur- dens, beehives and corn- fields. The easier these types of food are to obtain, the less likely it is that the bear will observe its own natural fear of humans. "Keeping bears out of yards or neighborhoods can easily be accomplished by removing food sources or making them difficult for the bear to obtain if it is dane prior to a bear visitation," says Forster. "However, once the bear makes the associa- tion between humans and food it becomes increasing- ly difficult to break this pat- tern." WRD encourages resi- dents and campers to under- stand bear attractants and do all they can to discourage bears by observing the fol- lowing tips: Do not feed a bear. Bears have a keen sense of smell, so keep items, such as grills, pet food, gardens, beehives or bird feeders, off E_mdts to bears. Clean and store grills when not in use, keep pet food indoors, take bird feeders down ff bears are in the area and if neces- saw, install electric fences around areas such as bee- hives, gardens and compost piles. Make sure trashcans are bear proof or kept indoors. When camping or picnicking, keep your site clean. Never leave unattend- ed food or coolers or keep food in or near your tent. Store food in progerly sealed containers and whenever possible, store these contain- ers in a vehicle. If camping in backcountry areas, hang packs or food bags at least ten feet off the ground and at least four feet from the trunk of a tree. If a bear is sighted, remain calm and remember that as long as an easy food source is not available, the bear likely will wander off on its own. Never approach a bear, no matter how tame it may look. If a bear changes its behavior, such as snapping its jaws, slapping the ground or bluff charging, it indicates that the bear feels threatened and anyone nearby should back away slowly while mak- ing a lot of noise. Do not attempt to run from a bear as this imitates prey. In the unlikely event of an attack, act aggressively by yelling, waving your arms and using anything you can find, such as rocks or sticks, to make noise. ,For more information on bears, contact a WRD Game Lanagement Office or call (770) 918-6416.
