Bears in Your Backyard

It seems you can't turn on the TV lately without seeing a bear ambling through foothill neighborhoods looking for something to eat. As drought conditions continue to make food scarce in the mountains, black bears weighing up to 500 pounds have been finding it hard to resist a free meal in fruit trees, garbage cans and pet bowls. A bear's food intake jumps from 3,000 to 25,000 calories a day this time of year. That's the human equivalent of 83 cheeseburgers!

Working with the Monrovia Police Department, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and Athens Services, I have organized a public safety forum to discuss safety measures when living near wildlife. Representatives will be on hand to discuss what to do when you find a bear in your backyard and how to bear-proof your property.
