As this article says, this month (June) is peak for seeing black bears, if you live in or near bear habitat.  This particular sighting was in West Virginia, but the advice applies anywhere there are bears.  Remember that they eat continuously, with a little time out for mating this month, and are always hungry!  We encourage you to heed the suggestions given in the article.
