Living with Bears It's that time of year when we tend to see more bears, as they wake up from their winter hibernation. Black bears are generally fearful of humans, but they are attracted to food sources like bird feeders, trash cans, pet food and grills. To learn more about black bears, including how to prevent bear problems at your home or while camping and what to do in case of a bear encounter, visit www.michigan.gov/bear. Conservation officers honored for life-saving efforts The DNR regularly honors those within its ranks who have reacted to emergency situations that might have otherwise had fatal consequences with the agency's "Lifesaving Award." Recently, four officers were honored at a Natural Resources Commission meeting, and the circumstances of their actions illustrate how broad the DNR conservation officers' experience really is.
