Halloween is for Humans, Not Wildlife

Halloween is a time to have fun. Avoid creating a scary situation this Halloween by keeping your pumpkins away from wildlife. Pumpkins attract bears into town which can lead to conflict with people and pets, and that can be deadly – for you, your pet or the bear. Protect wildlife and keep Halloween jack o’ lanterns inside. For more info, visit
