CODY, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is warning that black bears and grizzly bears are increasingly active in lower elevations around Cody.

The game department is reminding landowners and outdoor enthusiast to avoid conflicts with bears.

Mark Bruscino is large carnivore section supervisor with the department. He says bears have been very active over the last couple of weeks along the valley floors and front county areas around Cody. All the bears have emerged from their dens by now and he says there’s been an increase in bear activity.

The game department advises rural residents to avoid bear conflicts by securing all attractants such as garbage, pet food, and livestock feed. People heading outdoors should take precautions and carry a deterrent such as commercially available bear spray.
