    I saw a black bear within 1/4 mile of Cascade at noon today. They are really struggling this year.

    Has anyone considered supplementa feeding to keep em out of trouble?

    They are so scattered. They aren’t in herds, so if this was a good idea, I don’t think practical; and of course, a fed bear remembers where it got good food and will come back.

    I am doing a research project about bears sighted in Idaho and I am having a hard time finding information related to this. Can you help point me into the right direction?
