How to Avoid Attracting Black Bears

1. Put out garbage the morning of pick up, not the night before

2. Don't put out bird food from March to November

3. Keep the BBQ grease catcher clean

4. Burn off all food from the BBQ grill

5. Don't feed pets outside

6. Use bear-proof garbage containers -- should this be a town ordinance for all new multi-family housing?

When posting here, please keep in mind the golden rule: treat others as you want to be treated.

The recent comments posted reminds me of the revolutionary times when "North Castle was part of the neutral ground, site of destruction-fear was deep-rooted throughout the area: cowboys, skinners, tories and whigs, raided and ravaged the farms."

Is this really how we want to treat one another? Shouldn't comments add to the conversation, allowing neighbors to better understand one another's point of view?
