I was at the Lake Forest boat ramp the other evening and saw the largest most beautiful bear that I have ever seen in this area. He/she was truly magnificent. My husband and I watched the bear rumble across the parking lot and climb up a rock embankment to a lake front condo complex where an astute human waited with a bull horn to scare the bear away.
And I thought to myself, "we really have to be responsible with our trash and behavior to help these creatures stay out of trouble"...because as we have all heard time and time again, once the bear starts eating trash he/she will not be able to coexist with our human population.
So, I thought I would write about it prior to the big 4th of July holiday and hope that locals and visitors alike will be mindful about the impact they have on our bear friends. The more that we can do to keep them out of our trash, the more of a chance they have of surviving.
See this link below for some tips about how to "bear proof" your property:
There are also some other links on this page that are very informative. These recommendations are easy to do.
Next up....where to watch fireworks this weekend.
