Subject: [CT Birds] Bears vs Bird Feeders
FYI, CT is heading for a record year of bears entering homes. A bear entered a neighbor’s garage which had dog food in the it. One recommendation is don’t feed birds when bears are out of their dens. From the Danbury “News Times”.
Already in 2020 (through July 8) DEEP has received more reports of bears entering homes (25) than in any previous year and we are on track to triple the average number of home entries of 2018 and 2019," DEEP said in a release. "The number of home entries reported this year in June alone (17) equaled those reported during all of 2019"
