BEARWATCH’S ‘TIPS’
HOW TO KEEP BEARS ALIVE AND YOU SAFE

In 2017 NMG&F destroyed 70% of the bears they trapped for residents.
Help stop this needless destruction!  Please help save a bear.
Please follow BearWatch’s ‘Tips’ to help avoid dealing with a visiting bear.
If you find an abandoned cub, call (505) 281-9282 for advice.

  • Put out garbage only on morning of pickup.
  • Store garbage, birdseed, pet food in a sturdy shed or closed garage. If a bear is trying to access your garage or shed, hang a sock with mothballs on door handle. Mothballs are poisonous, read package safety directions.
  • If you see a bear in a nearby tree, etc...take your dog and yourself inside to give the bear time to leave.
  • Hang seed feeders and hummingbird feeders from wires 10’ off the ground, 10’ from supporting posts.
  • Keep barbecue grills clean or stored inside.
  • Keep kitchen windows and doors closed on summer nights.
  • For small livestock and chickens, provide a sturdy shed and or a 5-strand electric fence using an approved fence charger with alternating current. Be sure to check with the county inspector for guidelines and limitations.
  • Put a 5-strand electric fence around beehives. Remove fruit from under fruit trees if you don’t want to share.
  • Don’t add melon rinds or fruit to compost pile except in winter.
  • Don’t leave food containers/wrappers, groceries, pet food or birdseed in you car overnight
  • Feeding other wildlife could also attract bears. It is against NM law to feed bears on purpose.
  • If a bear is drinking from your pool or hot tub, put water out far from your home and neighbors.
  • Keep all poisons inside your house; many bears die from unprotected poisons or ingesting garbage bags.
