Have A Beary Good June

Here’s some timely info from our friends at GAWRD regarding our furry neighbored up here:

What are bears up to in June? Hopefully not up in your grill. Or your bird feeder. 

Usually, bears are just passing through your yard or neighborhood. But a bear that repeatedly finds food from garbage cans, used grills, bird feeders and pet food bowls is unlikely to leave, and will become bolder in its search for easy food. Bears can even learn how to open car doors and enter homes. As you can imagine, this can lead to quite a bit of property damage. 

Once bears have learned bad habits and have come to rely on people for a “free meal,” they rarely change those behaviors – more often, it gets worse with time and experience. 

So let's strive to be BearWise so we can keep the bears wild.
