Beary Irresponsible

I just witnessed a very unfortunate situation. I saw the Nature Center bear this evening, about 1.5 miles down the road from the visitor center. She was feeding on what I had thought to be road kill, but after she left the area I took a closer look and it appears to be some kind of game meat that was discarded, judging from the wax paper that was lying on the ground with the meat. There was a large femur and other bones, probably from a moose or caribou. Somebody possibly dumped it or it could be another example of people being irresponsible with their trash. Whatever the cause, it has created a hazardous situation and when a bear becomes accustomed to rummaging through trash in search of food, things usually don't end well for the bear. Problem bears are often the result of human carelessness.
