The Pennsylvania Game Commission has a long history of trapping bears.
Whether they are trapping bears as a part of a study or removing nuisance bears from residential areas or agricultural fields, these guys know what they’re doing.
Tag along as they trap and tag a bear in the Roth Rock state forest to see how it’s done.
As you can see, trapping bears is not something to be taken lightly. Specialized equipment is required to keep both the bears and the men and women trapping them safe.
The information gained from studies like the one shown in the video helps the PA Game Commission do an excellent job keeping predator and prey species well-balanced for hunters and the habitat.
