Some tips from Connecticut’s official website:

  1. NEVERfeed bears, intentionally or accidentally!
  2. Remove birdfeeders and bird food from late March through November.
  3. Store garbage in secure, airtight containers inside a garage or other enclosed storage area.
  4. Keep barbecue grills clean.Store grills inside a garage or shed.
  5. Do not leave pet food outdoors or feed pets outside.
  6. Supervise pets at all times when outside.
  7. Avoid placing meat scraps or sweet foods, such as fruit and fruit peels, in compost piles.
  8. If you see a bear in your yard, do not approach it! Go into your house, garage, or other structure.
