The local the game warden told us this.
He's set the bear trap twice for 2 days but the bear wasn't around then.
I think I'd check higher up the food chain from your local guy - maybe someone at state level. As far as your chickens go, you could look into electric wire around their enclosure. That's what the beekeepers do in the northern part of my state to keep the bears out of the hives. I'd get a high-powered fencer and put up several strands. (When we fence in our sweet corn, I tell DH to set it on "fry". No, the fencer doesn't have that setting, but sometimes I wish it did...)
