This is the time of year when you have to be extra careful you don’t leave your unsecured garbage cans outside.
Otherwise, a big black hairy animal – specifically a black bear - will raid it for an easy meal.
That’s the word from the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission, which is reminding residents to be “bear wise”
and keep in mind that North Carolina’s largest land mammals like to roam residential neighborhoods for food.
Bears are extraordinarily hungry during the fall season and start ingesting 20,000
calories of food a day to prepare for the winter months.
Getting food from an unsecured garbage can is an easy way to do that for bears. Bears raiding trash
cans also presents dangers, not only to humans, but to the bears too, state wildlife officials said.
We treasure our bears and therefore we do not want them eating trash.
We're sure that you feel the same as we do.
Help protect them by keeping them out of your trash.
