Bear-proof your vacation in Mammoth Lakes
Its not uncommon to come across a bear or two when you visit Mammoth. In fact, just last week a bear yanked out the back window of my car and hopped in. He cruised the neighborhood the rest of the week, always evading Mammoth PD when they would arrive.
According to Mammoth PD, some tourists on our street had been baiting the bear with trout carcasses for the week prior, so he was really only doing what he had been trained to do by careless, thoughtless humans.
This is both cruel to the bears and dangerous for humans. To avoid issues like this, check out our article on bear safety, including the video of the little ginger who was in my truck, tips from The California Department of Fish and Wildlife, and links to some of our local bear-loving celebrity, The Bear Whisperer.
