Wildlife safety

All residents are reminded to lock their cars. Bears in the area have learned how to open car doors. Never leave food or scented items in your car. This includes sunscreen, soap and insect repellent. Bears have highly sensitive senses of smell and can detect even small amounts of food like crumbs, spills and food wrappers. Use ammonia or pine-based cleaners as deterrents. Deodorize garbage cans, feed your pets indoors, keep barbecue grills clean. Bird seed also attracts bears so remove feeders. For more information http://www.wildlife.ca.gov/Keep-Me-Wild/Bear/.
