Bears seen throughout the District of Elkford

Monday August 27th.  Bears have been reported throughout Elkford.  Please ensure that garbage containers provided by the district are kept indoors (in your garage, shed or basement) between collection days.  There are still plenty of berries for bears to feed on in the wilderness.  When garbage is secured, bears will move on.   Removing problem bears dos not solve the problem, it simply opens up a niche for other bears to move in.  Image
