MNR has an early bear warning

A warning from the Ministry of Natural Resources. Linda Wall of the Bear Wise program says because of the unseasonably warm weather, bears are likely to come out earlier than usual. She says they'll be scavenging for food and that could mean encountering a bruin in the city.  She says it would be a wise decision to take down any bird feeders to avoid a bear coming onto your property.  Wall anticipates most of the bears will be younger ones,  about two years old.
