BAR IN THEM THAR CALHOUN WOODS - Bear Population Ever Increasing, Take A Look

(12/30/2018)

By Bob Weaver

"There is a continuing increase in the black bear population in Calhoun," said DNR officer Tom Fox in 2007, now retired.

Since 2007, the numbers have increased even more.

While a number of Calhoun residents have photographed bear, many published in the Herald, they're still very skiddish and tend to stay away from human contact.

We have a couple wandering around here in the Village of Hur.

Fox said that residents should never feed bear, for a multitude of reasons.

Here's a few Calhoun bear photographed by residents, and a couple are really big:
