What do you expect the bears to do? People leave garbage cans uncovered, etc. Besides, there are far too many people living in areas that belonged to the animals FIRST. Those poor creatures have no place to go anymore. Also, Highland Lks. is way over-populated for it's limited water availability.

As a former Vernon resident, I am siding with the Bears.
24 years ago, my family and I moved there to raise our children, What a safe and beautiful place. Kids played in the streets. NOT A BEAR IN SIGHT.....THEY HAD THE WILDERNESS TO KEEP THEM SAFE, NO REASON TO COME TO TOWN
I was visiting Vernon last fall, what a change, no available land, homes all over, stores galore, resorts, Looks like Bergen county.
My point is, the Bears are forced to go into the neighborhoods for food and shelter. Also I know certain people in Vernon hang bird feeders to ATTRACT THE BEARS....
They are wild animals depending on the wild to survive, Vernon took away their safe haven,DONT CRY VERNON, YOU DID THIS TO YOURSELF.....MONEY, POLITICS, YOU ARE NO DIFFERENT THAN ANY OTHER TOWN.
So when you kill another Bear, leave the cubs motherless, have a conscience, its not their fault, ITS YOURS.

I completly agree with Romeo. All people are doing is puting up restraunts, stores,and houses so the bears think it s ok to go by them. All the bears are trying to do is keep them and their cubs happy so they can have safe and healthy lives
