We've had a decent amount of rain in the immediate Capital Region, but it's been pretty dry in the Adirondacks. That has caused a shortage of wild foods for bears, so they're looking for their meals elsewhere.
The Department of Environmental Conservation tells NewsChannel 13’s media partners at The Post-Star that there were 330 reports of bears approaching campsites in the Adirondacks last week. The DEC says that's higher than usual.
At the Saranac Lake Islands Campground, there were more than 50 incidents involving bears.
