Agricultural crops such as maize, oats and wheat are strong attractants not only for bears but also wild boar and deer in every country where they are found. They provide not only an enormous quantity of food but also cover. Such a large amount of potential food often attracts bears over large distances, so seasonally many of them can gather in a relatively small area. That is why localities where such crops are grown have implications for public safety and, if animals cross main roads or railways, also traffic accidents. In order to limit losses, these crops should not be grown in close proximity to forest cover.
