Introspective Bears [Fixed Again]

Introspective Bears [Fixed Again]

Black bears have wandered into our yard to seek out bird seed from our bird feeders. One of the bird feeders that we have is 6 feet off of the ground; standing on its back legs, the bear towers over the feeder. On more than one occasion, the bear has bent the 1 inch steel pipe that is underneath the feeder. The best way to discourage bears from coming into one's yard, is to take bird feeders down, and store trash indoors. Also, if you see a bear, keep your distance; show respect.
