Wildlife officials warn of bear sightings in Nevada

Wildlife Officials Warn Of Bear Sightings In Nevada

Bears are supposed to be hibernating this time of year, but that isn't the case in Nevada.

Wildlife officials are warning that bears are out on the prowl because of recent warm temperatures. KTVN says a bear was spotted running through a bunch of terrified skiers on Heavenly Mountain, one of the country's biggest and most popular resort.

Because the animals aren't sleeping, they will be looking for food and water, which could be a problem.

No problem; the humans are responsible for the crazy temperatures, then it's only right that the bears eat them. Bears aren't supposed to be awake since there's nothing to eat, except for skiers that is.

In the meanwhile; get real, that poor youngster is terrified by the skiers in his own yard. And what the heck is this white, cold stuff? He's running scared and people want to shoot it?

Humans suck.

Yes, the Bear sighting in NEVADA while skying. The weather has been so abnormally warm, in the Western states, that hibernating bears are waking too soon. That is what 'Civilization' has done for all of us!!!!!! This is not just unusual, it is catastroffic. I think we have gone beyond the point of
'No Return' to what we knew as 'Normal Weather' it is going to worsen, and not recover. Yes,if you like, 'Doomsday' has arrived.......

Coming from a retired Police Captain, is even more of a shock. Unfortunately, the victim was also
to blame to a good part of the problem. Texting is a real problem every day. People are ging killed
driving cars while texing. I am sure that the stress of his work while on the Force is likely to have caused his violent reaction. ALL YOU OUT THERE,STOP TEXING!!!!!! It might prevent this happening to others, as well as the recipient.

I live up in Tahoe and the bears aren't going to hurt you. They are just as scared of you as you are of them. Just ignore them and they will go on there marry way. Remember it's there turf you are using :)

If you are going to put yourself out there (forest, sea, mountains) beware things live out there, and don't be surprised if you become fuel for other kinds of life.

Since bears are rarely enountered at the bar in the lodge, that's the best place to be.

The bears know there is something wrong, just like the birds, and most things that live in the wild. People that never leave the city, or are too busy doing other things, really have not got the answers. If all you do is sit at the computer, watch TV, or text message on the phone, than you are not going to notice the little things, that can change. What has passed has passed, today is the present, if you want a future learn to work with nature, and the people around you.
