Killing this black bear family will not resolve the ongoing problem in Anchorage. More black bears will replace those killed because the garbage that brought the bears to that neighbored will still be “the problem” that attracts future bears.

This problem exists all over Alaska, and the resolution isn't killing the animals that wander into our living space and get into our garbage - but to secure our garbage in a responsible manner so they don't have a reason to come into our yards.
