Baxter, friend of bears everywhere reminds you to please do your part to keep bears wild. Please don't feed the bears you may see around town. If you encounter a bear, do not approach the bear, try to look big and back away. If you have a bear in your yard, from a safe location i.e. from inside your home, try to scare the bear away by banging on pots and pans, use an air horn or clap.
