Thursday August 25. A bear was seen on the dike trail by the Coal Creek boat launch early yesterday morning. Bear sightings also reported on Anderson road and Alpine Trail in the last few days. Evidence of bear activity (scat) was seen on several trails, Ecoterrorist and Montane.
Be prepared and expect to encounter bears anytime. If you see a bear, stop, stay calm, identify your self as human, back away slowly and leave the bear an escape route. Please make it a top priority to bear proof your home and encourage your neighbours to do the same.
