  • Make sure your pets are up to date on their rabies vaccinations! The number one way rabies is spread to humans world wide is by the bite of an infected dog.
  • Make sure you communicate to kids that if they find a  wild animal that they do not touch it. visit the CDC rabies website that is designed for kids.

Black Bear Information from the Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection

From the Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (DEEP) :

If a bear is seen in your town or neighborhood, leave it alone. In most situations, if left alone and given an avenue for escape, the bear will usually wander back into more secluded areas. Keep dogs under control. Stay away from the bear and advise others to do the same. Do not approach the bear so as to take a photo or video. Often a bear will climb a tree to avoid people. A crowd of bystanders will only stress the bear and also add the risk that the bear will be chased into traffic or the crowd of people.

More info about black bears on the DEEP website.
