Keep away from bears on Chipman Hill

Posted on May 14, 2018 |
By Addison Independent



MIDDLEBURY — A bear with three cubs has a den in the Chipman Hill area, according to the Middlebury Police Department. The bear and cubs roam about the entire area, along the TAM, through DM Means Woods and Battell Woods and adjacent fields. Do not go near the bear, if seen. A sow tending cubs can be very aggressive and may cause injuries, while cubs have no fear and can appear playful. The bears will generally avoid human contact. Do not try to approach the bears or try to get close for a photograph. If encountered, leave the area immediately.
