Wise County Officials Issue Black Bear Warning

Wise County residents are being cautioned that this is the most active Black Bear season to date in the county’s history. Officials remind residents that feeding bears remains unlawful but that it is a big issue this year; which has resulted in the euthanization of four bears because of hand feeding. Officials recommend removing garbage, pet food, birdseed or any other items that might attract a bear. Additionally more information can be found by visiting www.dgif.virginia.gov/wildlife/bear
