Bears Raiding Garbage Cans

The city of Patterson is seeing increasing incidents of black bears wandering into inhabited areas and disturbing garbage cans in a search for food.  It's been a problem south of the city's railroad tracks for some time and residents there are already required to have bear-proof garbage cans.  Now, the problem has spread. Mayor Rodney Grogan says the requirement may have to be expanded to other parts of the St. Mary Parish city.
