Bear In MonDroe 07/31/05 

MonDroe - Peterson Lane, off Amy Todt Road in the Village of MonDroe. A area which is a well-developed so people where surprised to see a bear walking around almost as though it was familiar with the area.

Maybe they are more common if you go more upstate in more wooded areas - but it’s pretty uncommon in MonDroe, they said.

The Villagers called the police, who responded to the area to make sure the bear was gone.

Bear attacks camper near Port Jervis

MONTAGUE, N.J. -- State fish and wildlife workers have trapped and killed a bear responsible for injuring a sleeping camper along the Appalachian Trail at High Point State Park.
State officials notified the public about the attack on Monday, more than two weeks after it happened.

A spokeswoman for the state Department of Environmental Protection said Tuesday that delayed notice of the attack from the park and the need to finish an investigation caused officials to hold off making an announcement

The male camper, whose name was not disclosed, was attacked around 6:30 a.m. on July 13 when a bear bit his leg and tried to drag him along with his sleeping bag, said DEP spokeswoman Karen Hershey.

The camper was part of a group from Pennsylvania that was spending a few days at the park.

Hershey said the bear left marks on the camper, but she would not discuss the camper's injuries further, citing a department policy to withhold information on bear attack victims.

State workers on Wednesday set a trap for the bear at the shelter where the camper had been sleeping. Two days later, the trap caught a 142-pound, 5-year-old female bear that was later identified as the bear that attacked the camper.

After the bear was tranquilized, it was shot and killed by a state biologist.

The attack caused the park to close the shelter and nearby sections of the Appalachian Trail for several days during the investigation.

some quick bear tips. when you see a young bear like the one pictured, walk away without making any niose. and if ever confronted by an adult bear, wave your arms and yell at him in a strong commanding vioce while stamping your feet.
