I know a Blackbear isn't a pet, but the ammonia in the garbage does not work to keep him/her out.
The garbage is next to my carport so I wanted the bears to stop pushing the thing over and spreading the contents down to the creek. It was my husbands job to pick garbage up after the bears.
After realizing that the bear was still getting into my garbage, I had the sickest feeling in the pit of my stomach that I may have harmed the bear w/ the ammonia. I just about cried. No. . . I did cry.
The best idea I came up with is leaving the radio on during the night with a light shining at the garbage container. I have not had to pick up bear poop since. (Giggle) They may think that the radio is a bunch of campers. And that the light is the campfire.
