You have probably heard about all the bear break-ins recently? Bears can cause thousands of dollars in damage. Bears like food and wherever there is food they are going to track it down. If you are camping this summer or parking your car in the woods to go on a hike or in front of your home. Make sure you are locking your car doors and remove any type of food that might be in your car. A Bear has a keen sense of smell and sometimes can follow a scent when it is miles away. Make sure you are rolling your car windows up and locking your doors. Put food away and your garbage can in the garage with a lid on it. Carry bear protectant spray with you if you are out for a jog or a hike.

There are many useful tips on the Colorado Parks and Wildlife website.
