Bear Cannisters required in Daks

Response to Bear Training


Bear cannisters are now required in the High Peaks area of the Adirondaks because the bears have pretty much learned how to defeat any kind of hanging that humans can come up with. They even managed to defeat one type of bear cannister which had to be redesigned.

Bears are smart. If you give them enough incentive (such as happened in Yosemite) they will learn and then pass that knowledge to their children.
