           ***  BLACK BEAR MITIGATION  *** 

 

                             

 

 

Good Afternoon, 
Our office (USDA Wildlife Services) works closely with the NH Fish and Game Department to mitigate human-bear conflicts throughout the state. We are reaching out to towns in NH in the hopes that we can get some information about black bears and mitigating bear concerns on town website and Facebook pages. 
Prime black bear habitat includes deciduous forests (oaks, maple, beech etc.), wetlands, and riparian (along rivers) zones. The natural areas surrounding your town provide very good habitat for black bears.  Many human-bear conflicts arise when bears frequent properties to access food attractants that are found around homes.  The most common attractants are birdfeeders, unsecured garbage, and compost piles which include food scraps.  Livestock, such as chickens and pigs, can also attract bears when not properly protected. Electric fencing is the most effective way to protect livestock.  In most cases removing the attractant the bear(s) are utilizing eliminates the bear problem.  It is also helpful to harass bears with noise, such as banging pots and pans, or using compressed air horns to scare them away.

 History

Under Governor John Wentworth, a Charter was granted February 8, 1772 to Sir Thomas Wentworth and others for a tract of land called Bretton-Woods, derived from the estate of the Wentworth Family in England called Bretton Hall.

By June 1830, the population was 150 people but was unincorporated having no representation in the legislature.  The residents petitioned the legislature to become a Town named Haven (apparently to honor Alfred W. Haven, Justice of the Peace of Bretton Woods.)

As of May 1831, the legislature had not acted upon the petition of Bretton-Woods to incorporate as a town.  Some of the original petitioners changed their minds and wanted to withdraw the petition.  The legislature ignored the petition and passed an Act signed into law on June 22, 1832 incorporating the Town of Carroll.

Charles Carroll of Maryland was a distinguished American of wide reputation and one of the signers of the Delcaration of Independence.  Thus, the Town of Carroll was incorporated which included the villages of Crawford's, Bretton Woods, Fabyans and Twin Mountain.
