The state Division of Natural Resources conducted a poll to elect a state animal as a symbol for West Virginia in 1954. Students, teachers, and sportsmen of W V chose the black bear as the animal symbol by a large margin. The population lives in all of West Virginia's 55 counties. The black bear is also the state mammal of LA and NM.
