Being prepared for a black bear encounter is at peak importance in northern Michigan, which is experiencing a notable population boom.
The black bear population has risen 29% since 2012 and nearly 50% since 2000 in the Lower Peninsula.
The Upper Peninsula has seen 11% population growth since 2012.
The Department of Natural Resources reports an increase in nuisance complaints, but it's important to remember that bears can be more than just a nuisance in the wrong circumstances.
