And Vermont Has A Bear Problem

A game warden in Vermont says that bears are becoming more and more of a problem in the Green Mountain State because, “the bear population is higher than it’s ever been.”

An official with the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department says that the state is nearing carrying capacity for bears; that is the maximum number that the state has determined that it can ideally handle for the habitat available.

Vermont has begun implementing some changes in hopes of finding ways of reducing the bear populations. One way is to expand the bear hunting season and the state also plans to hold a bear hunting seminar on August 17, 2013, in order to encourage and educate more hunters to take up bear hunting.
