Keeping bears off your property

Hampden County

(WWLP) – 22News received pictures from a viewer in Feeding Hills, some bear sightings. 

We looked into how to keep bears off of your property, turns out, bears have a great sense of smell. 

So, your first line of defense is to make sure they’re not attracted to your property because of food left outside or in the trash.  

Also, feed pets indoors when possible, and store pet food indoors.
