Five Animal Rescues Made by New York Conservation Officers in One Week
Close Encounters of the Bear Kind
"It is important to remember when recreating outdoors, that you are not the only one who enjoys a campfire snack. Bears are present in most of the state, specifically the Catskills and Adirondacks, and their innate curiosity can lead them into some trouble. "
Hungry bears will eat almost anything. Kayla Marris had a bear visit her site and eat a citronella candle. "He ate the whole thing off the picnic table and left an empty can."
Jerry Sevey had a visitor at his campsite too.
The bears don't just come out at night either. Karl Stacer had one sit on his picnic table during the day.
Heidi Moon caught one roaming near her campsite. "It walked right behind my husband."
Diana Golden captured this massive bear at her camp in the Adirondacks.
