(KDKZ-TV) Black bears awakening from hibernation are now on the move.
Experts say residents in Southwest Missouri may start seeing more and more wandering around.
The potential for increased black bear sightings shouldn’t alarm people. They say that they’re not trying to cause trouble, they are just trying to find a place to settle down and food.
Black bear sightings have been happening in Southeast Missouri as well.
Missouri is estimated to have up to 350 black bears with the number steadily increasing.
