 Please audit your backyard to prevent conflicts with bears!

As the days lengthen and the snow recedes, bears are preparing to leave their winter dens. Now is the time for Vermonters to audit their backyards and secure human related foods that might inadvertently attract hungry bears. Preventing access to human foods is a key component of responsibly coexisting with black bears. Not only does it prevent property damage, but it can also save bears’ lives!



If you encounter a bear on your property or in your community, please let Fish & Wildlife know through our Living With Black Bears webpage:

Your bear encounters help Fish & Wildlife understand what work is needed to improve coexistence between Vermonters and black bears!
