These NC Bears Are Opening Car Doors, Looking For Food | WUNC

Residential areas in western North Carolina have seen an increase in bear activity in the past month, including some especially unusual behavior from a couple of black bears in Asheville and Cashiers. "In recent weeks, we have had several bears that have learned how to open car doors, and they get in the cars and look for food," said Mike Carraway, a wildlife biologist with the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission, which responds to bear incidents. "They're like teenagers, they're getting in trouble, finding a new place to live," Carraway said. "So it's really important to remove food sources from around your houses. That includes bird feeders and trash, and compost. Anything that would smell good to a bear needs to be either secured or removed." A scarcity of wild food may be causing the problem, Carraway said, although the two bears caught in the act appeared healthy when released.

Bears, in turn, "seem to be very tolerant of people," said biologist Mike Carraway of the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, which partnered with N.C. State University on the study. "For all practical purposes, within the city limits of Asheville has become a bear sanctuary," Carraway said.

Mike Carraway with the NC Wildlife Resources Commission said officials started seeing the bears in the second week of March, partly because of the recent warm weather.
In addition to the bears showing up early, officials say there are a lot more of theom. Carraway said preliminary results from a study show the area's bear population is growing.
