Bears packing on the pounds before hibernation

Activity picking up in and around Durango
Dan Hinds, left, and Rachel Turiel will store chicken feed in a bear-resistant garbage can that Bryan Peterson, center, with Bear Smart Durango delivered. Bear Smart purchased 50 of the used bear-resistant containers and is selling them for $50 each as feed-storage containers.
Bears scattered trash at this dumpster on Florida Road last week and visit it on a regular basis. Steve Barkley, the city of Durango’s code enforcement officer, says more residents have reported bears rummaging through trash during the last month.
