Kits available for dealing with bears

With bears returning and conflicts between people and bears arising, it seems an appropriate time for the Alaska Chilkoot Bear Foundation to thank the Chilkat Valley Community Foundation for last year’s grant to purchase two electric fence kits and two “Critter Gitter” noise-deterrent machines. The two kits, one AC and one DC, as well as the noise deterrent machines are now available for check out at our local Fish and Game office. Assistance in setting up the systems is available, so if you’re having trouble with a pesky bear, please take advantage of these deterrents. Thank you again, CVCF!
