Over the summer months and into this fall, we had shared a plethora of wildlife and critter activity here in Berkshire County. Thanks to modern-day technology, many Berkshire County residents were able to snap videos of everything from bears, raccoons, moose, wildcats, snapping turtles and the list goes on and on. Also, thanks to social media, we were able to view the wildlife videos online and share the videos with our neighbors.

It's no doubt that bear videos were plentiful. Whether it be searching for food, knocking down garbage cans, trying to get into homes, or just plumping along, bear videos shared by Berkshire County residents were a big hit.
