Wild animals are attracted to any sources of food and will come back time and time again looking if they find it. While we can help wildlife by using tight-fitting garbage cans and not intentionally feeding them, there are items that may be inadvertently attracting them. In addition to easy-access bird feeders and unturned compost bins, well-used barbecue grills can be tempting, too. The smell of charred meat and vegetables can entice bears and other animals. To prevent your grill from being torn apart, give it a good scrubbing and wash. When it's dry, fill it with wadded-up newspaper to help absorb odors -- just remember to remove it before you start the grill!
