Doubt it's climate change, more likely the Russians are a little short on food, because of the Obama sanctions, and been over hunting/fishing to the point the polar bears are reduced to knocking over trash cans. Russians will probably kill them for food, just need to do it in away not to upset the international eco-terrorist, who would push for more sanctions...

It isn't. It's just bears going after discarded food. The dump is near town, so they continue on into town after being attracted to the dump site, where they find food in trash cans.

Towns in the U.S. have had the same problem with black bears from time to time. The solution is to improve handling landfill at the dump, secure the trash, and to aggressively drive bears out of town (gunfire into the air works pretty well to get 'em moving). Putting bait out in the wilderness where you want them to go helps somewhat too. You drive 'em toward the bait.

This is a temporary problem, and will end when the bears hibernate again.

I don't know if Florida black bears hibernate, maybe a quick nap. Your solutions don't work, the woods here, are too rapidly being converted to apartments, condos, and convenience stores. The bear-proof trashcans work, most of the time, but bears have plenty of time to work on them. Main solution here, is to wait until somebody's aggressive breed dog (noisy little ankle biting fur ball) gets mauled or kill, sometimes the owner too. Funny thing though, bear doesn't carry off the fuzzy little snack, or eat it. Seems more defensive, yet the bear is labeled aggressive, and shot. Florida has a state-wide leash law, if the owners didn't break the law, their dog wouldn't have provoked the bear, and both would have lived.

Of course then there are the alligators, which eats little noisy ankle biting fur balls, whether the dog provokes it or not.

Again, if people kept their pests on a leash, the wildlife would get much of a chance to snack on them. I prefer large breed dogs, least they can earn their keep, (well, not so much this last one). I've had to keep this black Lab on a leash, because he's a little slow, possibly inbred slow, just doesn't learn or retain, stubborn too. But even then, the gators down at the lake never bothered him. Most animals don't work any harder than they need to for a meal, and won't go after large prey, unless they need to. Now, if it's big, and just begging to be eating, who wouldn't pass on a free meal.

They probably didn't want to catch his stupidity. Gators are smarter than they look.

The nice thing about gators is that they are cold blooded and don't need to eat very often. If they are hungry, though, any pet nearby is lunch. Yeah, if a large bit of prey was just asking to be eaten, the gator wouldn't turn it down!
