On this week’s Mountain Lake Journal hikers and campers heading into the Adirondacks this Labor Day Weekend are being warned to keep an eye out for bears. There have been some dangerous encounters between campers and aggressive bears looking for food. The Department of Environmental Conservation is recommending everyone use special canisters to keep their food and garbage away from bears.
