PHOTOS: Black bear spotted in Buffalo Gap
BUFFALO GAP, S.D. — Check out these photos from Theresa Perry taken west of Buffalo Gap on 7-11 Road, west of Highway 79 Thursday evening.
There have been multiple bear sightings in the Black Hills in recent weeks, including in Lead, Johnson Siding, and near Reptile Gardens.
Officials say that it’s common for larger animals in places like Wyoming and Minnesota to come to a place like the Black Hills in search of a place to settle.
At this time, South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks continues to record, monitor, and map the sightings but remind the public to keep areas clean of food, trash and even dog food that could attract bears and other wildlife.
