Black Bears At The Lake

black bearThe increased presence of Black Bears in the Lake area has been in the news a lot lately. Especially with the recent deaths of two Bears, one in the Versailles area and the other in Laclede County, the question being asked by some local residents is where did they originally come from? University of Missouri researcher, Emily Pucket has answer for us.

Pucket says the re-introduction program took place over fifty years ago and was initiated because it was thought that the bears had become extinct in parts of the region.
