How to repel a bear

Dear Editor:

Just returned to Basalt from Illinois and Wisconsin, and I see the bear problem has not gotten any better, so I have a suggestion for people that have dumpsters or trash containers.

Take some ammonia and splash it around each container and put some in the container because the pesky critters don’t like strong smell with their sensitive noses! It works at our place in Wisconsin so why not here?
