The summer weather and heat are bringing more people to the outdoors and that means more interaction with the animals. There are new reports about a fox attacking people in portions of New York State.

If you see a wild animal, the best advice is to just avoid it and stay away.

The Chautauqua County Department of Health is issuing a warning to residents after yet another attack involving a rabid fox. According to reports, two people were bitten by a gray fox on July 4th in the area of Route 430 in Bemus Point. A test on the fox revealed it had rabies and this incident happened just weeks after individuals were also bitten near that same location.

Just weeks ago, the issue was bears being seen across portions of the Western New York area.

From Alden to Eden, we have had reports of black bears moving through backyards and golf courses looking for their next snack. The bears seem to really enjoy the easy targets like a bird feeder or open garbage tote.

The Orchard Park Police have issued a warning on their Facebook page after another bear was spotted roaming near Cole Rd in the Town of Orchard Park.

This comes just days after the video below was sent to us of a bear caught on a trail camera near Eden, NY. This was just a day or two after a massive bear was seen in the Alden-Marilla area.

The New York State DEC advises all of us not to feed the bears. This is particularly important for those who are camping in a public area. The bears get used to the easy meals and become more and more brave. This could lead to a dangerous interaction with humans and, in some cases, could lead to officials having to euthanize a bear. Be smart around wildlife and respect the fact that they are just that; wild animals.
