RE: Black bears in chenango country new york
I've camped in Chenango, lovely park. Anyway, didn't see any bears, just skunks.
I wouldn't worry too much about them. Watch you bird feeders in the spring and fall, keep your garbage in the garage, keep your grill clean, watch out for outdoor pets and you'll be all right. I had one here in the Poconos the other night, tried to get my rabbits but it didn't get that far.
