Bears in trash have become a common sight throughout the Municipality of Anchorage this year. This summer alone, four bears have been killed for getting into garbage or human food.
"The whole city needs to be aware," said Assemblyman John Weddleton, who represents South Anchorage -- including the Glen Alps area, where a black bear was killed after eating food out of a vehicle earlier this month.
Weddleton says he's meeting with homeowners on the topic on August 2.
