    :D CANTON, Conn.— Tom Bradley had grown accustomed to seeing black bears walk through his Connecticut neighborhood, but this month he was alarmed to find something trying to turn a doorknob to enter his house.
    He used his key fob to set off his car horn, to scare away whatever was in his garage. When he went outside, he saw a bear and two cubs that had been trying to get into his mudroom.
    "I think what is happening is the bears are learning," said Bradley, who has lived at his North Canton home since 1991. "It was sort of a step from going outside to get the garbage, to going into the garage where the cans are and now they are moving into the homes because they have discovered that is where the food is."

    I agree with Tom. The bears seem to be learning. I also think as more cidiots keep moving to rural places and taking the land bears are being boxed in. But you can take that same attribute of learning and use it against them. If they figure out that every time they get near your property and they will hear a big boom and or one of them dies they will stay away.
