Black Bear Sighting in Montgomery County, Maryland

 

A black bear was spotted Monday night in northern Montgomery County. Black bear sightings in the area from May to July are not uncommon.

During this time, young black bears roam to look for their own territory and to find food. They can cover a lot of territory and may seek out bird feeders, trash cans, or compost bins. So it is recommended to keep them inside and/or secured!

 

If you see a black bear, remember:

1. Don’t panic. Back away slowly. Keep dogs leashed, and remove them from the area.

2. Do not approach and NEVER feed the bear. Always ensure the bear has a clear escape route.

3. If a bear climbs a tree, encourage everyone nearby to leave. Once it feels safe, the bear will climb down and move away.

 

To report a bear emergency, contact Maryland Department of Natural Resources at 410-260-8888. For more information on living with black bears, visit our website: http://ow.ly/eHV430qHyvI.

When I first read your title line, I thought you were talking about a Black Bear Diner sighting.  Your time of bear requires a cautionary tale, however!

The bears are coming out of the woods looking for food. Are you having more wildlife sightings in your area due to the slow-down with less traffic and people?

Oh wow, Roy... unusual to see black bears in a highly populated area. Great advice on what to do if one does run into a bear. Most of us wouldn't know as we don't encounter bears in our day to day lives.

I spotted my first black bear when I was 17, with cubs, less than a mile from our house where I grew up. It was scary but beautiful at the same time...

I didn't know the danger until I talked to my parents...

Happy Friday Roy Kelley
