Bear conservation efforts prove successful as sightings increase

Since April, there has been an uptick in black bear sightings in Bowie, Grayson and Titus counties in northeast Texas.

As the numbers of this iconic species grows, dispersing black bears find their way across state lines into Texas. For the rest of this story, see the July 2 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
