KY F & W: Black bears have been in Adair Co. for years
They are highly protected. There are times when the bears are dangerous, but most of the times they are as scared of humans as humans are of them
By Officer John Harris, Kentucky Department of Fish & Wildlife
Black Bears in Kentucky are native to Kentucky and are highly protected. There is a Bear season in Kentucky, but it is limited to two southeastern counties.
Black Bears eat an assortment of berries, nuts, insects and rodents.
Most of the time if a Bear is encountered, the bear is as scared of you as you are of them.
Times that a Black Bear may be Dangerous are mainly when a Mother Bear has her cubs or if a person surprises a Bear.
Black Bears have been confirmed in Adair County and have been here for years ,but as the population increases, then so does the chance of sighting one.
If you have any Bear problems contact The Kentucky Dept. Of Fish & Wildlife at 1-800 252-5378
