Re: What a Beauty!

Yes, cinnamon in color, but still a black bear. I think that is all they have in CA.

A bear was shot

at Ellery Lake Campground the day after you took your photo. I believe the bear had broken into a car.

Re: A bear was shot

Yes, sadly it was this bear. Someone had left their window mostly open and the bear crawled in. He couldn't get out and started tearing up the dash. A bystander finally openned the door and let the bear out. The bear was really being a nuisance and wasn't afraid of people at all. He wasn't threatening to anyone, just up to no good.

Re: A bear was shot

Does anyone know more about this? Was there food in the car? This is horrible...the poor bears are having a heck of a time because of the dry winter we had last year...all they want is food. I am so disgusted with again hearing of another beautiful Sierra bear being killed!!!

Re: Very Cool!

No, it wasn't bothering anyone. It was just being curious. I chased him away a couple times without any problem.

Hey ...

In my humble opinion, there's nothing wrong with being curious. You did GOOD, Dennis!
SOMEBODY has to chase the bears away.
