Updated:SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. —
A Seminole County homeowners association just became the first community in the state to pass new rules designed to protect residents against bear attacks.
In December, 54-year-old Susan Chalfant was mauled by a bear in her Lake Mary Neighborhood.
Now, her HOA is requiring all of the Wingfield North's residents to use bear-resistant trash cans.
The HOA will pay for the special trash cans for each home, even though they can be expensive.
