Think like a Bear

——Think Like a Bear——-

This video by Bear Smart Society puts into perspective why bears take many of the risks they do when interacting with humans. Here in Florida there were 5,132 bear calls last year. Much work has been done in that time including $850,000 in grant money for bear proof trash cans awarded to various areas within bear prone areas. However, Florida has been experiencing a high fluctuation of new residents at an estimated 1,000 people a day. Education is the key to getting these new residents on board. Please, share this video with your community groups, friends, and family so we can work together and coexist peacefully with our majestic wildlife.
