On a man in CA who used to hunt so was always good at figuring out how animals work/think etc. He was asked to clean up Mammoth Lake’s bear problem, so he watched them for a while at night and found out things he hadn’t know about bears and people.
His nighttime stakeouts taught him something else: In a town with more than 450 Dumpsters, some restaurants purposely left trash receptacles open, advertising evenings of food and bear watching. Tourists also left out food to attract hungry bears.
That’s often the case when it comes to critters.
