Persons may not allow "attractive nuisances" to exist.
Explanation: While the wording of the actual law may sound like an oxymoron, an "attractive nuisance" is really any object that will attract a bear (i.e. garbage). By discouraging bears to come around, dangerous human/bear interactions are limited as well as expensive bear relocation and/or shootings.
