Biologist talks about local bears Aug. 1

MIDDLEBURY — Vermonters of all ages are invited to attend a presentation about Vermont’s black bears at the Middlebury Town Offices on Wednesday, Aug. 1 at 6 p.m. In light of the momma bear and three cubs taking up residence in Buttolph Acres earlier this year, this is a very timely info session.
Vermont Fish & Wildlife bear biologist Forrest Hammond will talk about the extraordinary life history of bears, their ecology and behaviors, and what people can do to better co-exist with bears. Through colorful photos and captivating stories, the audience will come away with a new appreciation for these intelligent animals.
Vermont State Game Warden Dale Whitlock will be in attendance to meet with the public and answer questions. Warden Whitlock is stationed in the Middlebury area and has extensive experience providing advice and assistance to residents on bear-human conflicts.
 “We’ve had a lot of interest in black bears in Middlebury this summer following several prominent bear sightings around town,” said Hammond. “We’ll answer people’s questions about bears and talk about what they can do to live safely alongside them here in Vermont.”
The talk is free and open to the public.
