Interview: black bears and transportation planning

Print More

(Steve Delaney) In the high country of Vermont between Rutland and Woodstock, bears are out looking for acorns and beechnuts. It’s prime black bear country – thinly populated and crossed by only a few roads. But where the bears and the cars meet, the bears are often killed. A cub was struck by vehicle last week on Route 107.

Chuck Wise is trying to change that. He’s a transportation planner with the Two Rivers Ottaquechee Regional Commission and he’s focused on the interaction between humans and bears. Mr. Wise, welcome to Morning Edition.
