Bears in Crested Butte
June 20, 2010
It is not unusual for visitors to report sightings of bears in the Crested Butte area. Though there have been a few reports over the years of hopeful Grizzly sighting, chances are one will only come across a black bear. I have never heard of anyone being harmed by a bear in Crested Butte, but it is a good idea to leave your car windows closed, doors locked and leave no food in your car. There have been reports of bears going into cars and trash cans during the early mornings in town. This shot was taken here in town when a bear decided to climb a tree.
