SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) — U.S. Forest Service officials are warning visitors to the Bighorn National Forest that black bears are active on the forest this time of year and visitors should take precautions.

Forest Supervisor Bill Bass says black bears roam throughout the Bighorns. He says visitors should be prepared to share the forest with bears.

Visitors should keep a clean camp, keep cooking areas separate from sleeping areas and avoid sleeping in clothing they wore when cooking food.

Bass also encourages visitors to keep bear spray handy and know how to use it.
