Reminder: Bears Can Climb (hang food bags high)!

It’s crazy how far a bear will go to get a snack in this video. With spring in the air and bears emerging hungry from their dens, now is a great time to remember that black bears are really good climbers!

This video from last year shows the lengths a black bear will go to grab a snack. This guy’s rope-scaling abilities are really impressive, so keep it in mind the next time you hang your bear pack. —Sean McCoy
