THERE’S A NEW BEAR IN TOWN

A FAVOR FOR A BEAR

The Village government offices are aware that a bear was reported in the village limits, dining at bird feeders. The village is requesting that residents refrain from bird-feeding for about 45 days, to facilitate a change in the bear’s foraging pattern. Once a bear becomes comfortable near humans, this results in a poor outcome for the bear. Please make sure bird-feed and other temptations are not left outdoors. The DNR will not take action unless the bear is a threat, so the best way to help the bear is to eliminate any food source.
