Bear and Raccoon problem

Need some bear/raccoon repellent tips.

Since Thursday, we had a bear in our garbage 4 times. And before that, we've had raccoons in our garbage just about every night (they live under the neighbors deck). I know the easiest resolution would be to hold the garbage bags inside until the garbage truck comes, but the one day we tried that, the bear wandered into our backyard looking sniffing around. I live with 7 other people so we put out a lot of garbage. I tried pouring ammonia on the garbage cans (read it online) but those fucks didn't care. Got 4 dogs and a little niece at the house which are the main worries. Phone Post 3.0

You should open a casino with that tribe Chief!

Have you tried inviting the bear over for dinner and getting to know him? Phone Post 3.0

Dog proof foothold traps for the coons. .45/70 for the bear.

Get some poppers and tie em to the lid, that'll scare the varmits. May take a few tries....However, if they don't get popped, your garbage guys will not be amused. Phone Post 3.0

Get a dog that's game and stake him near the trassh at nignt.  The coons nor the bears will want to challenge him.  They will find easier food elsewhere

Can you shoot raccoons and bears for digging in your trash?
The raccoons would be easy, but bears have more regulations. I would believe that you could call animal control about the issue. Don't they deal with bears that come too close to homes? Phone Post 3.0

You need to introduce a bear's natural predator to your eco-system. What hunts bears? Dinosaurs and great white sharks. Dig a moat, introduce a white shark. Also keep a velociraptor in the backyard. PROBLEM SOLVED, you're welcome.

Or if it's a gay bear, the poppers will make it lay in your yard and demand you give him anal

Bears, no. The law in jersey says they have to be x amount of yards from civilization (I think it's just a general hunting law). Not too sure about raccoons. Something tells me it's illegal. Phone Post 3.0

Text the Bears wife raccoon cock pics.

Then just sit back and watch them take each other out.

It's what Michael Corleone would do. Phone Post 3.0

I would focus on the bear problem first.

You have a real problem here.

You have a bear that already associates your house with food.

Since he is used to getting a meal there, he will keep showing up...if you fed me every day, I would keep showing up at your house too.

You absolutely must ensure that your garbage is secured where the bear cant get it.

There are other things you can do on top of that...motion detectors, lights, electric fences, noisemakers even rubber shotgun rounds and bear bangers but if you dont get rid of the food, he will keep coming back.

The other solution is...call the game warden, tell him you have a garbage bear problem and he will probably come by and shoot, or trap it.

Of course, he will also give you shit for leaving garbage out in bear country, but you kind of have that coming.

Call animal control. Phone Post 3.0

I thought it said "beer" and racoon problems.

This makes more sense, but is also a let down.

Do you live in a city? If not I'd shoot them.

Or get a live or paw trap for the raccoons if you don't want to shoot them. Other than putting a 180 grains in its chest I don't know how to stop the bear. Maybe poison it? Phone Post 3.0
