CLEARFIELD COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) – When you try your best, but you don’t succeed … you hang on and go with the flow.

A black bear in the northern area of Clearfield County, Pennsylvania tried to get access to a bird feeder near a family’s hunting cabin, but he wasn’t very successful.

Video shows the bear dangling from the feeder, trying and failing to scale the contraption as it swings the bruin back and forth.

Grant Covert, who shared the video with Nexstar, said he has been battling the bears for years over the bird feeder and built the platform feeder about six years ago. The attempt was captured on Covert’s trail cam.

TIPS FOR BEAR ENCOUNTERS

According to the Pennsylvania Game Commission, black bears are generally shy and avoid contact with humans. They suggest doing everything you can to prevent close encounters and conflicts with bears, including the following:

  • Keep your campsite clean and odor free. Wipe tables and clean eating utensils thoroughly after eating. Burn all grease off grills and camp stoves.
  • Store food in safe or bear-proof places, like in a car trunk. You should never keep food in your tent.
  • Dispose of garbage properly by using camp receptacles if provided. You can also store trash in your vehicle. You should never leave garbage behind.
