No man is an island and all that stuff...
Im taking about neighbours who wont pick their ripe fruit or have someone else do it for them.
They seem to feel it is their yard and they can do as they wish.
Who cares that the bears are walking the streets along with kids going to school.
Who cares that the bears are causing damage in others yards on their way through.
If you have a fruit tree you simply dont ever use, perhaps it is time to take it down and replace with something more suitable.
Now is also the time to remove bird feeders.
Not only will you be saving the lives of those around you but also that of the poor bear who is only doing what bears habitually do.
None of us live in isolation, none of us can be thoughtless with our decisions.
