Hartford Courant article "Connecticut Black Bear Sightings Increasing"

Black Bears are frequently observed on the White Memorial Foundation property and they are becoming more frequent each year.  Below is a Hartford Courant article link that describes the number of Black Bear observations in the state of Connecticut.  The article has a very interesting map that allows you to examine the number of sightings throughout the state throughout the years.  The number of sightings remain high in northwest Connecticut.  However the number of sightings are increasing south of Litchfield and Morris in the past 4 years.
