With the mountains getting hit with another April snow storm this weekend, Colorado Division of Wildlife officers like Shannon Schwab say they are seeing bears become more active.

That is because the natural food bears eat is now covered under several feet of snow at a time when that snow should be melting.

“We are seeing what looks like and feels like winter still, but wildlife is waking up and having babies and they are ready to begin their spring functions,” Schwab said.

With natural food covered, bears are looking to easier items like trash, grills, or bird feeders. Recently, DOW officers were called to a home in Breckenridge for a bear that got stuck in a garage looking for food.
