Black bears extra hungry this spring in New Hampshire
Updated: 6:32 PM EST Mar 9, 2019
CONCORD, N.H. —It’s almost time to take down those birdfeeders.The New Hampshire Fish and Game department urges residents to remove their birdfeeders and other food attractants, such as trash cans, to prevent bears from foraging in back yards. Officials recommend birdfeeders be taken down by March 15 in the southern part of the state and by April 1st.
Officials say bears went into their dens this winter in poor condition due to a dearth of natural food sources. That means black bears are coming out of their dens with depleted fat reserves and will be extremely hungry.
