The TV show MONSTER QUEST ran a segment showing black bears roaming a LAKE WANDA, NJ neighborhood. Two "plump" adult bears and two well rounded yearlings were waddling down the street or driveway "Just walking along, singing a song, side by side..." One "nature nut" has trained bears to feed right in her yard thus becoming totally desensitized to humans. As many as 15 bruins have been seen at the same time congregating around her house. Mamas are vigilant when their little kids are out in their yards playing. At the first sign of the bruins, they herd their offspring into their homes. One man was home alone when he heard a noise in his kitchen, there he found a bear digging his garbage. It gained access through two doors. The home owner went back upstairs, climbed out a window, and dropped to the ground. A neighbor allowed him to call the police. Bears had pried up and bent both lids on a metal dumpster. They'd reduced a nearby gatepost to splinters. All this within 25 yards of a daycare facility for little kids. What would you do to protect your kiddoes in that situation? Barking dogs don't faze the critters in the least bit. This place is within 45 minutes of downtown Manhatton.
