Nuisance Black Bears

Bears will travel more than 100 km to a known food source, such as a berry patch or a stand of beech trees. Bears are highly intelligent and will learn where other food sources can be found and seek them out. They can easily learn to re-visit your backyard once they have determined that food can be found there. The majority of bear problems occur as a result of improperly stored household garbage. Bears quickly learn to associate human residences with a readily available food source. Bears that obtain food from humans will continue to seek food from humans and become nuisance bears. Anyone who sees a bear is asked to report it immediately to the DEC wildlife unit at (518) 897-1291

Zika Virus

For most people it is a mild infection with few or no symptoms. But it has been linked to health problems in some people. It is a serious concern for pregnant women, their partners and couples planning a pregnancy because it can cause serious birth defects. Zika is not spread from person to person by casual contact.
