Prince William County Animal Shelter
Due to the increase in bear sightings reported in Prince William County, we would like to provide the following safety tips.
It is important to note bears in this area are omnivorous and typically do not pose a threat to people. During this time of year, many of the bears forage up to 20 hours per day for berries, plants and deceased small mammals.
They do not hunt animals or people. Once a "human placed" food source is removed, the bear will usually return to its normal diet in the woods. Females may become aggressive when protecting a cub. We ask that citizens avoid approaching bears at all costs.
It is important to prevent bears from becoming accustomed to people. Homeowners and businesses should remove food sources from around their property. Common attractions include bird feeders, pet food, grills and trash containers.
The State does not allow the trapping/tranquilization and relocation of wildlife. We ask that any resident who sees a bear contact Animal Control via email ([email protected]) with any reported sightings. Or contact the State Game Warden (855) 571-9003.
Further information can be found at http://www.dgif.virginia.gov/wildlife/bear.
