Did you know that black bears make “nests” in trees so they can feed in comfort? Forrest Hammond of the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department shared that and many other intriguing bear facts in his engaging presentation at the Mount Holly Town Library. Audience members got answers to all their questions, like how to keep bears out of the backyard (take down that bird feeder) and what to do if you encounter a black bear (make a lot of noise and do NOT run away!).
