Most of our “bear” problems aren’t bear problems at all, they are people problems. These decals are aimed at getting people to do the right things with their garbage. Here is a look at one of our dumpsters, with the decals applied.
When a camper is in too big of a hurry to re latch or put the bear bar back in place, we will have a large mess to clean up. But it can get worse . . . . .
The hasty camper, however, may just have placed a death sentence upon the bear who is simply following his nose to a meal.
The decals are one of the tools we received at our Bear meeting in LaJara at the USFS office.
