The Lynchburg Police Department says that it is continuing to receive bear-related complaints from residents in the area of Boonsboro Road and Route 501 as well as the Wiggington Road area.
Police remind residents to keep garage and all other doors closed at all times. Additionally, food attractants such as bird feeders, garbage and pet food should be removed. Bears that learn to associate food with people can cause property damage in their search for food around houses.
Store garbage in a garage, shed or in a bear-proof container until trash pick-up day.
