A FED BEAR IS A DEAD BEAR

PLEASE STOP FEEDING THE BEARS!

This summer we have had several visits from bears in Sandia Heights. This is not in itself a problem—after all, we did build houses in their habitat, and they have a right to be here foraging for their natural food. The problem is that people have been putting their trash barrels outside the night before the scheduled pickup, or leaving their garbage outside instead of keeping it in the garage. Naturally the bears take advantage of this easy food. This is bad for bears because they get used to raiding trash cans, which means that eventually they will become less afraid of people and are likely to be trapped and killed by NM Game and Fish. For people, it’s inconvenient to pick up trash that’s scattered around. Please, please keep your trash inside until the morning of trash pickup, and bring bird feeders inside at night! A FED BEAR IS A DEAD BEAR!
