What happens if I do not use a bear resistant container?

Owners may be attracting bears to residential neighborhoods, which may pose threats to human safety and pets. Teton County could seek abatement of these violations with possible fines up to $750 per day, per offense. However, the last thing anyone wants to see is a conflict resulting in someone getting hurt, property damage or a bear being removed from an area.
