Bears cause problems at NH campground

Posted: Updated:

There are major concerns Tuesday about bears at one New Hampshire campground.

The state's Fish and Game Department says about a half dozen bears are making nightly visits to dumpsters at the Moose Hillock Campground in Warren.

They say the site has failed to take appropriate steps to keep the animals away, like locking the dumpsters and using a fence.

Bear experts say it's a combination that makes the animals less able to survive in the wild and more comfortable around people. They fear if folks are gathering around to watch the bears someone could get hurt. The campsite has been issued a written warning and could face legal action if it does not make changes.
