The Bears Are Back!
As we all “shelter in place” during this worldwide pandemic, we are seeing a great resurgence of wild life around the world!
Wildlife biologist Ranger Katie, told the press that Yosemite National Park’s wild bears have been noticeably out roaming through Yosemite Valley since the park closed on March 20.
Here’s the report I found:
“For the most part, I think they’re having a party. I think that this time of year is difficult for the animals here,” Ranger Katie said. “There can literally be walls of cars, stop and go traffic or people in the park.”
Ranger Katie said the bears usually find “corridors” to get from one end of the valley to the other to avoid humans. But since the park closure, she said rangers noticed more bears walking through the meadow.
“Now that there are no people, the bears are literally just walking down the road to get to where they need to, which is kind of cool to see,” she said.
I love this, as we have forced so many wild animals to vacate their natural space, so it’s great to see them taking it back!

I have posted a lot of stories about wildlife and nature, as I love seeing other species enjoying their natural surroundings:
My wife and I stay in a rental home in Malibu every year, and I can’t wait for the world to get back to a “new normal” so we can sit out and watch seals playing in the Pacificas Ocean again – you can see them here:
