Wildlife in the Neighborhood

Bears:
  • Always latch your bear-resistant trash container and only put it out on trash day after 7 a.m., and pull them in by 7 p.m.
  • Do not feed pets outdoors.
  • Clean barbecue grills after each use.
  • Keep exterior doors, lower-level windows and garage doors closed and locked, especially if you store any type of food (pet food) in the garage. Bears are agile and smart. They have walked into homes using the lever-style door locks.
  • Loud noises, such as banging pots, music or air horns, will often scare away a bear. 

Moose:
  • Moose are not easily spooked and do not fear humans.
  • Moose see dogs as predators and will attack aggressively.
  • Always keep your dog on a short leash and under control.
  • Keep your distance. If a moose reacts to your presence, you are too close.
  • Females will defend their calves aggressively. 
  • Bull will defend their territory with increased aggression during the fall mating season in late September through November.

Mountain Lions:
  • Do not leave small children or pets unattended outside. Pets should be on a leash.
  • Make noise when coming and going, especially from dusk until dawn.
  • Turn on outside lights before stepping outside.
  • If you find dead animals that appear to be killed by a lion, the lion might be near, so leave the area.

If in doubt and of need of assistance, contact Public Safety 970-926-2335.
