There are bears in Oakridge Mountain. In order to be good neighbors to them,
it is recommended that all garbage be double wrapped before being put outside in trash containers. If bears smell garbage they will go after it. If they are considered a nuisance, they are not relocated, they are euthanized.
There are leash laws in East Ellijay. Pets are not to roam freely in the neighborhood.
