Guess what we found!

On Sunday, July 23rd, we discovered something very fresh that had been left on our driveway!  Guess what it was!   ……..Bear poop!  Unfortunately, it contained mostly items eaten out of a trash can.  See close up picture below.  Bears can smell food odors from miles away and will go into areas where human food is easy to obtain.  They will continue to return to an area where they had previously obtained food.  Do not put garbage cans out until the morning of a pickup.  Clean cans often and freeze food scraps before tossing to elimiate odors.  A 32 gallon bear-resistant trash can can be purcahsed for about $200.  For more information go to the article published on this blog called Time to be Bear Aware.
