According to the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries this is the migratory season for young bears. Please take the proper precautions and bring outdoor pets indoors, secure food sources that are outside of your home. They will take advantage of open garbage cans and other food sources. If you see the bear please DON’T chase or follow.
