Searles asks town to bear down, warns fines are option

April 24, 2014

Mammoth’s bears are up and about early—too early for the grasses and greens they usually rely on for much needed calories in the spring.

The bears also bedded down late due to the late snows. Some of them did not fully bed down at all since the snow did not seal in their dens all winter.

This combination means they are unusually hungry right now and Mammoth’s wildlife specialist Steve Searles said it is time to ramp up efforts to keep the hungry bears out of dumpsters, or face fines.
