Put away your attractants, snow may bring on more bears
With the potential for snowfall, it’s important for residents and businesses to secure bear attractants.
That’s according to Deputy Chief Chris Doyle of the Conservation Officer Service who says snow can cover up a bear’s natural food source, so the animals may step up their efforts to pack on some calories….
There have been numerous enforcement activities by C-O’s over the past few months including the conviction of a Richmond man for trafficking in bear parts.
He was ordered to pay more than 17,000 dollars in fines.
