Ask a Dispatcher
Q. My landlord is not providing a secure location for apartment trash. Earlier this year a neighbor called JPD after being startled by a bear eating out of the trash can. My landlord was told of that situation and of several bear visits since. But they still haven't fixed it. What should I do?
Dear Juneau Resident,
You can go about this two ways, possibly at the same time. Call the landlord and explain the situation and find out if any change is in the works. Also, call JPD at 586-0600 and report the unsecured trash. No one would want to see a bear get into trouble after becoming habituated to this food source.
