Brief Spot on Bears

Sierra Madre, CA. – October 2, 2014

The residents of Sierra Madre live near natural areas and routinely receive unexpected visits from all types of wildlife seeking food, water and/or shelter. With the cities proximity to the San Gabriel Mountains, wild animals occasionally enter the urban areas of the city and place residents and domesticated animals in danger. The wildlife includes coyotes, mountain lions, bobcats and bears. The presence of unwanted wildlife (or predators), in the back-yards of our residents often times evolves into an emergency and public safety is summonsed for help. With the rapid ecological changes in the weather, the police department has seen a huge increase in the number of calls for service in regards to wildlife.
