Bear management meeting in Deltona emphasizes education

- As central Florida's population continues to grow, wildlife experts are trying to educate people about how to live alongside black bears and what to do if you come face to face with one. 

"We didn't used to have bear-human conflicts," Stephanie Allen with the Central Florida Zoo said. "We didn't have people getting attacked by bears, we didn't have people having bears on their back porches." 
 
In recent years bear-human conflicts have been on the rise. In 2015 Florida held it's first bear hunt in years. 
 
Fox35's Kate Burgess has the complete story in the video above about how officials believe education is the key to better manage the current black bear population in the region.
