A temporary order signed Friday by Bridger Teton National Forest Supervisor Jacque Buchanan extends the dates of the forest’s food storage order to include all of the bison hunting season. The order extends the requirements from December second through January sixth. Typically, the food storage requirements remain in place only until December first. Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says considering problems with bears experienced last year, the forest decided to take a pro-active approach this year. Cernicek says the order pertains to human food including canned food, harvested game animals and parts, pet or livestock feed, and personal hygiene items. She says proper food storage means placing it along with other bear attractants in bear-resistant containers or hard-sided vehicles. Lacking such provision, attractants should be suspended at least 10 feet above the ground and four feet away from any vertical support.
