Bears Are Emerging From Long Winter And They Are Hungry, The Outdoors Blog In Spokane, Washington’s-Spokesman Review

I know I have written about this but -HURRAH- This is a favorite time for me.
WILDLIFE — Black and grizzly bears are emerging from hibernation, and wildlife managers are trying to get word out to people who live in bear country – that’s virtually anywhere north and east of Spokane – to clean up their act and avoid creating a problem bear out of a normal hungry bear.

Generally the males of both species grizzly and black bear species come out first and get their bowels activated by eating grass.. Females with cubs den separately from the males and generally emerge after the males have had a chance to start replenishing fat reserves by feeding on winter-killed deer and elk.

But basically, they’ll eat everything. So it’s important to clean up bird feeders and secure garbage and keep pet food inside.
