Colorado is running out of places to relocate bears Colorado

Tue Sep 06, 2016 7:37 am

As bear-human conflicts rise, Colorado is running out of places to relocate bears, a system that has questionable value.

So far this year, Parks and Wildlife has relocated six bears and put down 17 in Management Area 8, which includes Glenwood Springs, Carbondale and most of Pitkin and Eagle counties. Last year saw three moved and 11 killed, while 2014 had 21 moved and 19 killed. Parks and Wildlife officials generally have a two-strikes policy with bears, tagging their ears and relocating them after a troublesome encounter, and putting them down only after a second such encounter or an immediate threat to people.
