Grizzly bear in the window on lower Elk Valley road.

griz in windowGrizzly bear on a door step, no attractants here but elsewhere in the neighborhood.  Removing bears doesn’t solve the problem, as long as the attractants are there expect more bears to come in after easy food until hibernation time (usually late November). Relocation seldom works. Bears don’t survive well in new habitat or make their way back to communities. Don’t blame the Conservation Officers who have the unfortunate task of destroying bears. We are to blame, if we have garbage out, apples or other attractants on our properties or know of someone who does and won’t take the time to help them or as a last resort call the bylaw officer.

Garbage, apple trees, birdseed and pet food etc. attracts bears to your property and neighbourhood making it more likely for the bear to break into your home creating a safety risk for your family and a death sentence for the bear. Remove whatever has attracted bears to your property and if it is safe to do so scare the bear off, bang pots and pans together, use an air horn or any loud noise maker.

We chose to live here, it is our responsibility to bear-proof our properties.

    if you added a headline to possibly get a person’s attention? I mean Grizzly

    | is a little boring. You ought to look at Yahoo’s
    home page and watch how they create article headlines to grab viewers to open the
    links. You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab readers excited about everything’ve got to say.

    In my opinion, it might bring your blog a little bit more interesting.
