drawing of black bear with BearWise info insideThis spring several neighborhoods had bears visiting at night looking for food. Bird feeders and beehives were damaged, and folks began asking what to do. N.C. Cooperative Extension, USDA Wildlife, and Pitt County Planning began looking for research-based solutions. We believe residents will continue to meet wildlife in their neighborhoods, parks, and facilities.
