This bear, if he still exists, is in danger, as his habit of raiding unbearproofed trash bins is considered a public "nuisance." Therefore, he is doomed.

The bears and other wildlife were here long before people came along, and since we're living where they do we need to learn how to live with them.

Anyone who doesn't like bears, mountain lions, deer, elk or smaller critters like racoons and squirrels shouldn't be living in the mountains.

there were state and federul bounties on mountain lions in the past uppa here in the mountains, so obviously the state of Colorado didn't like mountain lions. Should everyone in Colorado up and moved? Stop being such a sanctinmonious pric.

creatures were here long before the bears. Kill the bears and replace them with dinosaurs.

Somehow, the crows and sparrows and robins and mice and rats adapted to the emergence of humans, while the bears obviously have not. Note who is supporting this Bear Lovers group - All unmarried women with nothing better to do, like raise children. Let them live in Alaska with bears. We all know how that turned out for someone who thought they could "communicate" with bears.

If only there was a "Judge It" icon for sophomoric.

'Rick'- what lived where you live now? Do you live on the plains? How about some free-ranging bison for your neighborhood, eh?

can drop everything and put bear discussions on the calendar immediately, while the human beings living in substandard housing right in the neighborhood continue being ignored. If this results in everyone having to put bear-proof garbage cans, at great expense, outside their homes and businesses, that will be a tremendous waste of money. We've lived here in Estes Park for 47 years, and we have never seen a bear. So why don't we have a group arguring for every house keeping rattlesnake venom in their refrigerator as well. Once again the mayor and the town trustees bow down to the shrillest, silliest voices.

This is unfair slander. These women who are all spinsters hope to mate with the bears.

So it is important the bears and the Bears Are Us spinsters don't eat garbage and have garbage breath before mating.

Most of the comments on this topic are just plain silly. It don't really matter if you haven't seen bears, the point is that other people in the area have seen bears, and still more other people have seen bears clothes enough to shoot them. Don't let the bears get clothes enough so you have to shoot them. I think this is the message of the bear advocate. Dress your bears appropriately and then you can make sweet sweet love to them when you visit their castle.
