Jack Hanna, director emeritus of the Columbus Zoo, said that the warm weather of spring used to bring out more tourists and more bears.
Hanna pointed out that the bears were forced to come outdoors especially during warm weather.
They would be more hungry and thirsty during this period.
Moreover the warm weather makes them to wake up from sleep often. This is their wandering time of the year.
According to wildlife experts, the best defense against a bear is to keep them at distance.
Yellowstone National Park regulations have asked visitors to stay at least 100 yards away from bears.
