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.
