Bear Tracking

Just keeping everyone aware of the bear!

Seen early Saturday morning at 1:00 a.m. rummaging through the trash at a house on Risinghill closer to Canyon Crest. The neighbor made loud noises and the bear took off.

So, since we have a permanent resident here in The Meadows, some suggestions:

  • Secure your trash cans
  • Don't put food in the trash until the morning of trash day.  Or freeze it to be put in the trash the night before.  That takes the smell away.
  • Bring in pet food at night.

From what I learned from a Park Ranger in Yosemite, bears track with their noses. It's all about taking the scent away so that we and the bear are safe.
