Focusing The Lens On Black Bears, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, the black bear is West Virginia’s state mammal and lucky visitors can occasionally see them in the woods, but spring is also a time when they are out and hungry. We meet a photographer who has encountered several bears over the years in his career.

Also, in this show, Gov. Jim Justice signed a new abortion law that targets patients concerned with the development of a fetus, and FEMA has put West Virginia at the top of its list for federal response efforts.
