There have been a number of bear sitings in the Lake Wenatchee area, including two different bears yesterday on North Shore between the Y Camp and Brown Road. A small cinnamon colored bear with a yellow collar wandered into our yard on N Shore in the middle of the afternoon, and a second small black bear was seen on N Shore at Brown Rd. It is somewhat unusual to have bears around the lake this long after the snow has melted out.
To keep bears from becoming habituated to trash, and then having to be trapped and relocated (and frequently euthanized), here is how to bear proof, or at least bear resist, your trash can.
