Bears in Sheridan County

Bears in Sheridan County

There has been a lot of bear activity being reported recently in several areas of Sheridan County. Wyoming Game and Fish Department Sheridan Region Public Information Specialist Tina Schmidt, while a guest recently on our news talk show Public Pulse, said that they normally end up interacting with humans due to food.

Some tips to prevent bear interactions in your area include storing garbage inside a secure shed or garage until the morning of pickup and feeding pets indoors so the food isn’t left outside. Schmidt said that unfortunately, bears will eat just about any kind of food even horse grain and bird food found in feeders.
