Creature Comforts | Black Bear Black Bear
The black bear and Mississippi have a storied history together, dating back to the days of President Theodore Roosevelt. Today on the show we welcome Becky Rosamond from the US Fish and Wildlife Service to talk about the black bear and the Black Bear Program. She shares that the black bear population in Mississippi is around 200 bears but they very hard to spot in the wild. With an emphasis on the slogan "Keep Wild Bears Wild", Becky shares tips about what to do if you become face to face with one of these mighty creatures.
