Bears To Emerge From Hibernation Here Soon

(JACKSON, Wyo)  While there have been no reports of bears emerging from hibernation in the Jackson Hole area yet, they have been spotted out already in Yellowstone National Park.  Still, Wyoming Game and Fish Spokesman Mark Gocke admits it is possible to see some “early risers” in this area now as well.  Gocke says the area usually sees the bears emerging beginning this time of year, and things will begin picking up as the month progresses.  “It’s definitely something to start thinking about,” he says. Adult male bears usually emerge from hibernation by mid-to-late March, followed by females without cubs. Female bears accompanied by cubs emerge later in the spring and are extremely protective of their young.  Bear biologists remind that people who may have become lax during the winter months in the storage of bear attractants need to again pay special attention to putting garbage in bear-proof containers, keeping pet-or-livestock feeds in a secure place, and removing any birdfeeders they may have put up during the winter months.
