Bears on the move searching for food

Park Rangers are asking you to watch out for bears. Five bears have been hit and killed inside the Great Smoky Mountain National Park over the last two weeks. Even more were killed outside the park. Dana Soehn with the Park says an acorn crop failure is forcing bears to widen their search for food into more developed areas as they work to fatten up for winter hibernation. Officials say that with winter foraging going on, if you’ve got outdoor animals you should only put out an amount of food that you know they will eat. Also, if bears are active in your area you are advised to bring in your bird feeders.
