The Bears are out, and They're HUNGRY!
We had a visitor one morning here in the Kingdom! A Black Bear came up on to our back porch and took an entire 30gallon trash bag of trash! Claw marks all the way up the stairs. We look out, a pile of trash, completely ravaged through. No wonder why the dog was going crazy inside the house last-night. He knew! And we know its a Black Bear. Black Bears are the only Bear found in Vermont. Early spring is the most difficult time of the year for bears, natural food supplies are low, bears may be attracted to bird feeders and garbage cans, and can become a nuisance or a potential danger to people. So watch your trash cans! Maybe re-think where you store it, or what your trash is being stored in. A can in the garage is best!
