Black bears more active this time of year on the Suncoast?


Yes, black bears are here on the Suncoast.  Below is a video from last year of a black bear in North Port.


Bear sighting in North Port

Paws-itive identification. NPPD Officer Justin Lindsey caught something a little unusual on his dash-cam Saturday night. A large Black Bear in the area Wylam Dr. and Veterans Blvd in the City. The bear potentially drawn out after the recent #Raintreefire. The animal turned over a very large dumpster at a nearby church and was eating the trash. Residents in the area should take precautions. Also, if we find anyone interacting with the animal unnecessarily, you will be held responsible. More info here: #Bear
