Watch: Bear safety tips from FWC

A Florida black bear cub looks around a tree.

Florida Fish and Wildlife released the first videos from a new "Living with Florida Black Bears" campaign to help residents avoid conflicts with black bears by putting their best paw forward.

The videos demonstrated how people can stay safe by securing trash and when to report a bear sighting. FWC said the hoped the videos will help communities be "BearWise" and coexist with Florida's wildlife.
