Unlawful black bear kill in New York leads to charge

The New York DEC routinely provides technical advice to residents statewide to help reduce the potential for negative interactions with bears, including removing bear attractants like pet food, trash, and bird feeders. (Stock photo)

Every spring, the state Department of Environmental Conservation cautions residents about the increased chances of encountering black bears as they emerge from their winter dens looking for food.
John Foley, of Cazenovia, N.Y., (Madison County), apparently didn’t get the memo. Foley was charged recently with illegally killing a nuisance bear on his property, and DEC officials say it’s a good example of what to do and what not to do when dealing with hungry spring bruins.
