LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (KGO) — If you’re headed to Lake Tahoe in the coming days or weeks, don’t leave food in your car. Most of the bears that had been hibernating are back out and on the move looking for food. The snowmelt is happening but not fast enough in many areas.
“Unfortunately they do have the power of cuteness but you have to kind of put that in the back of your mind that is a very large, very dangerous wild animal!”
Chris Joseph of Keep Tahoe Blue says his colleague recorded video from her dining room in the Sierra a couple of weeks ago. She made sure to be as loud as she could so the bears knew, they weren’t welcome.
