Bears, Bears, Everywhere!

Subscribe to A Day In The SmokiesThe National Park Service reports that due to lack of berries and other wild food sources, the bears have been more persistant than ever in pursuing people food. And we sure have noticed!

This bear visited our office!Bears regularly dig into the trash at nearly all of our cabins and chalets. But we have had more reports than usual of our cleaners having to stay at a cabin longer than they’d like because there’s a bear outside! And it used to be very rare to see a bear near our office. After all, we are right down in town on the main Parkway! But this year we have had at least four visits from bears! They especially love to play in the creek out back, and of course, dig into our trash.

Be Careful Who You Ask For Directions!Believe it or not, I even heard tales that there was a bear strolling the downtown Parkway one evening, right in the middle of town! Maybe he was shopping! Fudge anyone?

Although bears are fascinating and beautiful creatures, please don’t forget they are wild animals. The Park Service has issued a few warnings we would all do well to take heed of:

They Sure Do Love To Get In The Trash!

Warning: Bears have been approaching visitors challenging them for food. Some of these bears have been extremely bold in attempting to get food.
Bears are wild animals that are dangerous and unpredictable.

Do not feed bears!

Do not approach bears or allow them to approach you!
