Bears in the Woods


(Photo: El Lado fenced backyard,  July 2016)

 

Although bears can be appear cute and mostly harmless they also may be unpredictable so take care should you come across one.

In the event a bear should become a nuisance it must be established that the bear is a problem to the community before Fish and Game authorities will act.
For this reason
Thomas Lorenz of the City of Glendale, is collecting all calls and sightings and putting together a file on bear(s) activity.

Please report all bear sightings to the Glendale Police Department's non-emergency number

 (818) 548-4840

The GPD should respond, but only on a non-emergency basis.

Here are some ideas to keep the bear at bay and not interested in hanging around: Visit the California Department of Fish and Wildlife's "Living with Wildlife" web page for further information: www.wildlife.ca.gov/Living-with-Wildlife

Here are some links for helpful information documents on living with Bears.
