Due to hunting and habitat loss, black bears were completely gone from Ohio by the 1850s. Today, the state’s permanent population is small, estimated at fewer than 100 and primarily located in the southeast part of the state. Most bear sightings in Northeast Ohio occur in the spring and is the result of juvenile males searching for a new home. However, bear tracks have been found in different seasons - including winter - in Liberty Park.
