Bears on the Loose

Just when the U.S. West Coast was done with the a hot and dry summer which saw forest fires in the region I wrote about here and here, it’s now the black bears’ turn to show up in the western states. Apparently the hungry beasts have been affected by the drought brought about by this year’s intense summer and are now desperate to find nourishment in preparation for their hibernation in November.

Since their food source, (acorns and berry,) have been affected by the drought and forest fires, their search for food has led them to human territory much to the surprise of people who aren’t accustomed to see the animals in such places. Some have even gone to as far as inside human homes.
