Recently we became aware of a rumor circulating about Huckleberry Swamp. Apparently someone is saying that 15 bears were brought in on a truck from New Jersey and released at Huckleberry Swamp. We are not sure why this rumor was started but we can assure you that NO bears have been released at Huckleberry Swamp. Bears can walk in on their own but we are definitely NOT trucking them in from New Jersey or anywhere else!
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us.
