DNR Bear Project Leader Andy Tri on the Tuesday Morning Show: Bears!

black_bear.jpg

Andy Tri is the acting bear project leader in the forest wildlife and populations research group with the MN DNR.  He joins John and Heidi on the Tuesday Morning Show to share the wealth of knowledge he has accumulated through his research on bears.  Andy explains how a bear’s body goes through hibernation, keeping them awake and alert but with little movement.  We learn what they eat in the early spring and why they seek out bird feeders and food from our backyards. Andy says there are now more black bears in North America than there are all other bear species combined in the world.
