Wildlife officials: Even with abundant natural foods for bears around Aspen, people need to secure sources
An abundant bounty of natural food is expected for bears around the Aspen area but serviceberry, choke cherry and acorns are generally maturing late because of all the snow last winter and a wet, cool spring. Wildlife officers stress that even with abundant natural food available, people need to eliminate food sources for bruins because they will always go for an easy meal.
