Seems like the bears have decided to hang out around Lake Washburn neighborhoods this year. Many different bears have been sited and photographed by lake owners in various locations. They especially like
bird feeders of all types, and occasionally get a special treat of garbage, (if the property owner puts it out early for pickup) for their dining pleasure. Rumors have it that they don't seem to be afraid of humans, therefore they don't scare away easily. Be careful, nice to watch but not a friend to humans. Bears will continue to return where they find a food source. If you have a visiting bear(s) and don't want them to return, remove the food source. Eventually they will realize that there is no food and will move on. Happy Bear Watching!
