DUNBARTON - Police say there have been several black bear sightings in the area of Gorham Pond.

Sightings should be reported directly to the New Hampshire Fish & Game dispatch at (603) 271-3361 or Dunbarton Police dispatch at (603) 224-1232.

Fish and Game officials offer these eight tips to keep bears away.

The Tips

- Stop all bird feeding by April 1.

- Clean up any spilled birdseed and dispose of it in the trash.

- Secure all garbage in airtight containers inside a garage or adequate storage area, and put garbage out on the morning of pickup, not the night before.

- If using a dumpster, inform your dumpster company that you need a dumpster with metal locking tops and doors that are inaccessible to bears and other wildlife.

- Avoid putting meat or other food scraps in your compost pile.

- Don't leave pet food dishes outside overnight.

- Clean and store outdoor grills after each use.

- Finally, never feed bears!
