Bear Troubles

Listen Now

There can be trouble when a bear decides to dine on people food, trash or livestock. That can happen when bears’ natural food is scarce - because of drought or a long winter. This year’s dry conditions in parts of southern Colorado have forced bears to look for food in towns like Crestone. A bear was even captured near downtown Pueblo. Ryan Warner speaks with Randy Hampton of Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
