Bear Management

I was looking on the Michigan DNR site and came across a story about Bear Management. I thought it was funny because the title reminded me of Yogi Bear. Here's some of it:

Michigan Black Bear Management Plan
The plan will provide strategic guidance for the management of bears in Michigan. The plan will be developed to help:

  • Maintain a viable bear population that is compatible with habitat, land use, recreational opportunities, and public acceptance;
  • Conduct science-based bear management with socially acceptable methods;
  • Provide additional recreation opportunities; and
  • Educate public about black bear management.

The plan will:

  • Address regional population management;
  • Address social concerns; and
  • Reduce conflict between user groups

Hey, Boo Boo! If you follow the link, make sure you hide your pic-a-nic baskets. Yogi might get 'em anyway, after all he is smarter than the average bear.
