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?

Try as I might, I don't see the bear in that photo. What is that a photo of?
