Bears Around Cordillera

Bears are waking up from a long winter hibernation and have been seen throughout Cordillera. Residents and guests should take precautions to avoid human/wildlife interactions. 

Public safety would like to remind homeowners that Cordillera prohibits feeding wildlife, both intentionally and unintentionally. Bird and hummingbird feeders are also prohibited.  

"A fed bear is a dead bear" because bears easily become accustomed to eating human sources of food whether it is from garbage, bird feeders, barbecue grills or homes. When bears develop bad habits, the Colorado Division of Parks and Wildlife becomes involved to relocate or destroy the bear. 

With a nose that is 100 times more sensitive than humans, a bear can smell food five miles away. Their natural diet consists of grasses, berries, fruits, nuts and plants, but they will resort to persistent scavenging when they find an easy human-provided food source. 

Public safety should be contacted if a bear is in a trash can, is in close proximity to a house, is near children or appears to be a threat to domestic animals by calling the Divide Gate at 970-926-2335.
