We saw a bear on our home cameras walking through our backyard at 2:20am on 06/08/22. We live adjacent to Stevens Park and the Jesusita trail.
That's a good sized neighbor!
Wow, yes, that's a big bear!
Looks like the bear that was at my front door and trash cans last year, near Parma park. He was non-aggressive when I happened to come out of my door about 6 feet away from him.
Be sure to not leave your animal food out! Bears have an incredible sense of smell, and readily go for your dog/cat/chicken/etc. food left outside. My good friends used to purposely leave honey-covered donuts out in hopes they'd see a bear and/or capture one on a trail cam. The honey seemed to be a bit over the top, but people will be people!
