Game wardens in Pennsylvania said bear sightings there are ramping up, and there are some things that attract bears that you should make sure are not in your yard.
“Make sure there’s no food sources available, and the common food sources are bird seed, from bird feeders, or bird seed stored on a porch, garbage, any kind of household garbage that’s accessible and outside pet food,” Mike Ondik, Game Warden for the PA Game Commission, said.
Ondik says there will continue to be a high volume of bears in the area for about another week.
If you see a bear you are urged not to approach it. If a bear approaches you, you should make loud noises and act big.
