Written by Andrew-Rossi on April 25, 2019
A black bear may have been sighted on the outskirts of Cody Tuesday night.
Officials from the Game and Fish Department were alerted to the presence of a bear near Riversbend Trailer Park about 8:30 Tuesday evening. Large Carnivore Biologist Luke Ellsbury says while they can’t be sure what type of bear it was due to failing light, its behavior and location lead them to believe it was a black bear.
Ellsbury says that this is the time of year when bears become more active. He urged residents to always be bear-aware, and take precautions to minimize human-bear interactions.
