Unsecured garbage continues to bait bears into Elkford

As long as garbage is kept outside between collection days expect bears on your property.  By keeping your garbage outside between collection days you are jeopardizing your own safety and that of your neighbours and contributing to the needless killing of bears

A bear was trapped and destroyed last Friday at the Chauncy apartments.  Another trap had to be set at the campground as there are still a number of bears posing a threat to human safety. Removing bears will not solve the problem, it simply opens up a niche for other bears to move in.  As long as there is garbage expect bears.  By keeping garbage indoors (garage, shed or basement) everyone, including the bears, will benefit from a cleaner and safer community.Image
