I was reading the letter from Ms. Jausoro who was very mad that a bear tore up her Explorer -- which we would all be very mad about. But I feel she kinda brought it on herself. It sounds like she lives out by Herring Cove because of "BooBoo" -- which someone told me about that worked out at ARS. We all know that there are tons of bears out that way eating all the fish. So you could kinda plan on when the bears are out to make sure every bit of food is inside. I just don't get it.
If you have had previous bear problems why would you leave a box full of apples in your car during a time when bears are trying to get every last bit of food they can before they hibernate? Didn't you expect them to smell and get the apples? I just don't get it. Bears are like most any animal and will take the easier meal.
All you gotta do to prevent
problems is... don't leave food/garbage outside or in your car
and they will leave you alone. It's as simple as that.
