Living With Large Predators in New Mexico

Communiqué from New Mexico Department of Game and Fish 8/2/2020

Subject: Timberlake Subdivision

We have met with the association before on bears, cougars and other information at your community center. It has come to our attention recently that occupants have had trouble with a bear in bird feeders. Officer Lackey will be dealing with it as it pops up. We need help with getting the word out about bear concerns. Mostly situations with bears eating food set out for birds, squirrels, deer etc. Can you please inform the occupants that we try are hardest to not move bears for getting into bird feeders. We have even cited individuals that continue to set out bird seed during bear conflicts. We can not move a bear in the State of New Mexico to suitable habitat that doesn't already have bears. This creates a higher mortality rate for the bears, meaning either the bear we move or the bears that are already there will be pushed to lesser quality habitat through territorial behavior, hit on highways or killed by other bears. "A fed bear is a dead bear" is a cliche statement you've probably heard but its very true when it comes to the bear's future. There is no reason biologically to feed birds this time of year and it only leads to bears escalating bad behavior. I know its fun to see different bird species utilizing the feeder but its not worth it when it attracts bears. Please help us spread the word to your association, to at least temporarily remove any bird seed, hummingbird feeders etc. as they are creating a nuisance by attracting bears and acclimating them to the neighborhood in a negative way. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at the number below.

Wildfire Preparedness Is Year-Round - Don’t Depend On Luck

The first 0 to 5 feet around the structure, known as the immediate zone or noncombustible zone, has the greatest impact on fire risk.

Clean up dead vegetation from last season that gets trapped against your house, under your deck, and against fences. Keep any plants in the 5-foot zone irrigated and pruned.

Replace mulch from around the base of your home with a non-flammable material such as river rock or pea gravel.

Don’t store firewood, gas cans, lawn mowers, cardboard or other combustible materials next to your home. Move these items at least 5 feet away from the outside walls of the house.
