+Lil Elephants Posted March 17, 2005 Share Posted March 17, 2005 My family is planning a trip to Western Massachussettes and my wife asked what kind of wildlife they had there. I did a quick search and came across several articles talking about black bears. There was also This Forum Post discussing bears. Being from an area where there are no bears except in the zoo, I am concerned about encountering them in the wild. However, I don't want to be afraid if there is no cause. I figure the best way for us to approach this is to draw on the experience of the "locals". How many of you Eastern NY/Western MA cachers have seen bears while caching/hiking/etc. Do you normally carry a weapon or bear spray? Quote Link to comment
