Dauphin — A bear had been tearing up  the greens of a golf course near my house,  looking  for  grubs.  At  the  same  time,  a  chipmunk was burrowing under my patio.  I set my bear trap at the golf course and  baited it with about 50 pounds of doughnuts donated by the local Weis market. I  also set up a small box trap on my patio  for the chipmunk and baited it with a dab  of  peanut  butter  on  a  cracker.  The  next  morning, the box trap was squashed flat as  a pancake and the peanut butter cracker  was gone. When I checked the bear trap,  I discovered a chipmunk nibbling on my  doughnuts,  with  no  sign  of  the  bear.  I  hope  the  bear  enjoyed  his  peanut  butter  cracker as much as the chipmunk enjoyed  the doughnuts. —WCO Mike DOherty, Dauphin
