More Than a Dozen Bear Sightings in Denver Neighborhoods

Deputies are concerned because there have been several bear sightings in populated areas in Arapahoe County in the past few days.

“In this area it’s not expected,” said Lt. Chris George with the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Department.”However like we said earlier, it’s not uncommon, we can have contact with our wildlife here in the state just about anywhere, certainly unexpected down in this area.”

Tyler Baskfield, a spokesman for DOW said, “We want to remind people to alleviate any attractants from their yards, whether it’s barbeque grills, bird feed, pet food. Anything that may attract bears. You need to remember, bears have powerful noses and trying to pack on weight so they’re going to go for any easy meal sources here along the front range.”
