Elephant Green PSA: Keep your trash bins secure, or trash inside until trash day: locally, bears will get put down if tagged three times.
And, so sad: “This squirrel had eaten too many “handouts” (trash, food from people, etc.) and as a consequence the soft food did not break down his teeth. Squirrels teeth continually grow because their natural food source (nuts) are very hard and chip away their teeth. This squirrel likely died from starvation [painful] or infection because of the tooth. My grandfather once trapped a squirrel like this and cut its tooth off and it continued to live.”
