Time to be Bear Aware

The Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission is warning residents to take precautions now that the black bears have emerged from their winter dens.  Residents can help keep bears wild and reduce human-bear conflicts by eliminating the availability of human food such as pet food, bird feeders, and garbage cans.  Bears can smell food odors from miles away and will go into areas where human food is easy to obtain.  It is best when bears obtain their food in the wild, and will likely spend more time in the wilderness and away from homes if residents remove human food sources.  To read the article published on April 26, 2017 by the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission and to learn how to minimize items that attract bears, go to Time to be Bear Aware.
