Bear Activity Summary: Yosemite Valley continues to have multiple bears active throughout the area. This week a bear caused two incidents in Valley Campgrounds. One of these incidents was due to visitors leaving food out after cooking at night. Please be sure to store all food and scented items in a secure bear locker when staying in the campground.
A bear continues to be very active around the top of the Snow Creek trail. Many visitors have reported seeing it in or around their camp. Additionally backpackers have been losing bear cans due to the bear rolling them off the edge of a cliff or into the nearby stream. Always place your bear can in a secure location well away from any hazards.
A bear obtained garbage this week in Tuolumne Meadows campground. Please protect your property and the bears by always securing food and scented items before leaving your campsite for any reason. If you see a bear during your visit please report it to the Save-A-Bear Hotline at 209-372-0322.
