Wednesday May 10. Grizzly bears were reported in 7 mile park by Elkford. Bears will travel great distances looking for food and are frequently drawn into residential neighborhoods by the promise of garbage and other attractants. It is much easier to keep food away from a wild bear in the first place than it is to teach a bear to stay away from unnatural food that he has learned to enjoy. Keep garbage indoors until collection day, bring in bird feeders, clean BBQ’s and secure all wildlife attractants.
