Once thought to inhabit only large forests, black bears can now be found in a variety of habitats including developed areas, and bears are occasionally observed in every upstate county.

With more bears in more places, New Yorkers are encouraged to keep bears wild by eliminating bear access to bird feeders, garbage, and other human related food sources.
