BEAR feeding ordinance
Granby CT residents only (Granby, West Granby, and North Granby) Signature has to be verified by the town as a resident. Please sign first and last name. Thank you !!
Bear are a wonderful part of living in Granby. They are the town mascot. It’s important for the safety of bear, humans and domestic animals that we be spectators only. Selfishly increasing their visits to our yards by feeding them, on purpose or carelessly keeping our trash, is not safe for them or us. There have already been losses of domestic animals and property damage, as well as an increasing number of vehicle vs bear deaths. It’s only a matter of time before a person is injured by a bear that is habituated to humans.
Therefore: A town ordinance is being proposed that will prohibit feeding attracting of wildlife accidentally or purposely to protect all.
Enforcement will be by the town animal control officer
