SUAMICO (WLUK) -- This bear wasn't after a picnic basket, but some food intended for birds.

Ken from Suamico sent to our Chime In page the above photo and video of a bear snacking on some bird seed on his backyard deck.

It's a reminder to keep food out of the reach of bears during the summer months.

That's one of the tips from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, which says bears can also be attracted to garbage cans, compost piles, pet food and outdoor grills.
