survey

Postby astargirl22 » Mon Jun 01, 2009 9:55 pm

i got this survey in the mail from osu asking me to fill out the types of animals i had, what my surroundings were like where i lived and what type of wildlife i see. at the end of the survey, it said the reason for the survey is to see if u have seen any black bears in the area. it said that there is a huge increase of sightings in ohio of them. they are wanting to look at conservation and habitats for them. i thought this was really neat. i really want to see a bear in the wild. they are SUCH BEAUTIFUL animals and i think they are just awesome. i was just wondering if anyone else in ohio got one of these and their thoughts.

I dont' live in ohio. but, the survey sounds intereting and a good idea.

I personally never seen a bear in the wild. I would love to though.
of course I get to see my two little darlings every day.
but, would still want to see how they are in the wild.

I watch them on TV anytime there is an epsoside on bears.

I have great respect for lynn rogers. he has done an amazing job with the bears.

they are seen on my street occationally, as well as badger. I am so sick of bear sightings on the news, and the news says its a lost bear from PA. Yeah, like bears walk 100 miles over the Ohio line and walk back to PA every night. Ohio has been in denial about the bear population for a while now :lol:

I've never seen a wild bear either. I've seen a baby bear at the auction.

I live in Middlefield. Its like an hour from Cleveland and an hour from PA. the negatives for me would be a bear tearing up my animal pens or garden. There is always the chance they would kill my livestock though that would be odd. If the bears were here I would just have to use more electric fence.

Lasergrl...thats funny, I agree, do they think a bear knows where the border is or that they can read the welcome signs coming into Ohio? Bears will be bears, they are here in Ohio and yes the numbers are growing. They are not lost. Down in northern Florida the numbers are on the rise also. If we have a bear wonder to this area they catch the bear and send it back over to the eastern border near Pa. I live not too far from Columbus if they seen a bear in that part of the state people would crap their pants..lol I did not get the survey but it is a good idea. I probably wont get one since I do own 6 bears.

I saw a wild black bear once. . .not well, it was in the dark, but I could see it when all the cameras flashed in Yellowstone Park :lol: .
Foxes love gingerbread men, cheese, and Tom Thumbs, if fairy tales can be believed.
