Please, if a bear is sighted, stay in your homes, report the sighting and let the dnr capture the bear. Let's not have a repeat of what happened to the bear that was killed in Parkersburg a while back.

I agree that bears are wonderful animals, but there is a reason why there are signs posted in parks and campgrounds that say "DON'T FEED THE WILDLIFE" and to not leave food laying around. Bears are large and sometimes very aggressive animals. They are not puppies. They have no place in largely populated areas. Not only for a person's safety, but for the bear's safety as well.

Armybrat the dnr usually just chase the bear out of town into the woods they rarely capture them. And wonderwoman00 I see now why you would worry if your children watched the daredevil stunt! Especially if you ignore the signs do not feed the wildlife what an example you must be setting for your kids!

Hey Wonderwoman - I grew up in an area that had a lot of black bears. The WORST thing you can do is feed them. They can take care of themselves just fine, but when some idiot thinks they are Grizzly Adams and "befriends" the bear, it NEVER ends well. Bear gets hungry and decides it's easier to enter your home than pick berries. They are not aggressive, but VERY defensive this time of year especially. "Food in the dumpsters" is NOT what you want to feed them, if you give a*****about them. (I do, but they need to be in one place, and us in another. Think Jurassic park with fur) Trust me, I know as to what I say. By your incredibly naïve comments, I'd say you've only seen them in the zoo. Or the internet.

In my statement, guess I wasn't plain enough, captured and released in the wild. But then Freddie is so ignorant, he makes an argument out of everything, without knowing what he is talking about.
