ST. MARY PARISH, LA (WAFB) -
People in St. Mary Parish are being urged to take the
necessary precautions to help minimize encounters with black bears that have
been seen in several neighborhoods across the parish.
The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries
(LDWF) issued the extra advisory after a dog in Patterson was injured when it
decided to chase a bear. Although Louisiana black bears are normally shy and
non-confrontational, they will protect themselves and their cubs when chased by
dogs. Dog owners are advised to keep their pets secured.
Agents said they are seeing higher-than-normal bear
activity in the area. Officials said the bears are looking for food and are
attracted to live oak acorns in people's yard, scraps in unsecured garbage cans
and pet food containers left outside.
LDWF said it has partnered with the parish to provide
bear-proof garbage cans to homeowners. The containers are meant to control the
problem of the bears having easy access to food from garbage cans, but people
are reminded to lock them and not overfill them.
LDWF added it will continue to set traps in
neighborhoods where nuisance bears re-appear and increase patrols to help
Call 1-800-442-2511 to report problems with bears.
