Reminder Not To Feed The Bears

Spring and summer bring out the local bears from hibernation and they are looking for a meal.  Be careful, understand that feeding a bear acclimates them to humans and puts them in danger of being killed. The bears and their cubs are out in full force this season. If you see a bear or bears, do not approach them! The cubs are cute, but they have very sharp claws that can hurt you, and the mama bear is close by and will protect her cubs.

Please follow the Pine Mountain Club association rules and DO NOT FEED the bears or leave trash outside. Take your trash to the Transfer Site often to keep the bears’ temptation at bay. The Transfer Site is open 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day, and stays open until 7 p.m. on Thursdays during bear season.  Also, bring in your dog food bowls and cat food, the bears will smell it and that could create a danger to your pets.

Every year Pine Mountain Club residents see deaths of their pets due to leaving out food and attracting a nuisance.
