Got chickens? Beware of bears

The Division of Fisheries and Wildlife (MassWildlife) is alerting poultry owners and related groups about the need to protect their birds and coops from hungry bears. Black bears killing chickens and damaging chicken coops is becoming one of the most frequently reported human-bear conflicts in the state. Common in central and western Massachusetts, black bears are expanding their range east to Route 495. Poultry loss, coop damage, and other bear conflicts have been reported in all of these regions and calls have increased lately as bears fatten up before winter hibernation. Many poultry owners have no idea their birds and coops could be at risk.

Please visit this link  for information on protecting poultry from black bears. And for more information on black bears in Massachusetts click here.





The Middlesex Conservation District is a not for profit environmental agency dedicated to protecting soils and waters in Middlesex County. We hold plant sales twice a year, in April and September, to fund our conservation programs.  You are welcome to simply come and shop, but we encourage advance ordering as we frequently sell out of our more popular items. Orders are accepted in February and March for our spring sale; and in July and August for our fall sale. For any questions about our sales please send an email here.
