Recently, we have seen a growing number of bear/human interactions. The primary cause is improper trash storage. Given an easy food source, bears go for it. So what? Bears eat garbage…BUT as they become habituated to interacting with people, what’s next? Destruction of property? Threats to human safety? “A fed bear is a dead bear.”
Make your voice heard- let City Council know how you feel about co-existing with Bears!

In 2014, in NW CO alone, Colorado Parks and Wildlife was forced to kill 111 “nuisance” bears and relocate 79.
Can we do better? The City of Steamboat Springs, Colorado Parks and Wildlife, and local trash collection companies are working together to come up with solutions! Support them in meeting their shared objectives of upholding the safety of humans and bears.
*Trash container policies.
*The role of local law enforcement.
*The role of Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
