ALBANY — Black bears are active again with warmer weather, and New York State officials are warning people not to attract them with food left outside.

The state Department of Environmental Conservation said most nuisance bear encounters happen when hungry bears are attracted to human food sources.

If you live in an area near bears, take down bird feeders after April 1 and store garbage in a secure building, the agency said.

Hoemowners should also clean barbecue grills before nighttime — and never intentionally feed bears.

New York State is home to more than 6,000 bears.
