We have had a bear active on the ridge behind our house - tore up some bee hives (left them in pieces) and another one spotted near our pond. An animal control officer told us that there is about one bear per square mile here in the Southern County. Generally, keep your trash cans in until the morning the trash collector comes - and, the bird feeders should be down for the season. The bears are hungry right now since they have only recently come out of hibernation.
