The N.C. Wildlife Commission will launch the Urban/Suburban Bear Study in Asheville in the spring, the first study of its kind in the state. The booming black bear population is part of the impetus for the Asheville study, one of the changes to the new black bear management plan that will be discussed at public meetings taking place this month. The next meeting will be Wednesday in Clyde.
