Bear Report

Bear Report!

8/26/2012 - By Donn

We have had a couple of bear sightings this past month! 

While staying in Precious Memories this bear was photographed taking a nap just off the lower deck!  The bear was there for over 30 minutes catching up on a few zzz's,  before moving off down the mountain!

A local resident near Heaven's View cabin reported seeing a 500 pound bear near the cabin!  Heaven's View is literally a stones throw from the park,  so bears near this cabin are not uncommon!

About 3 weeks ago some folks left a window open on a car over night with some snacks still inside while staying at a cabin in the mountains.  They came outside to find a bear in the car!  This is not recommended,  this is not good for the bear or the car!

And as always,  the side of the dumpster has muddy paw prints evidence of a bear trying to get at what is inside!  When using the dumpster,  please close and lock the door!!!

Seeing a bear at or around a cabin is very rare!  There are bears in the area,  but they typically do not like to be around people.  If you do happen to see a bear,  do not feed the bear and keep your distance especially if there are little bear cubs!!!

Best place to see a bear in the wild is Cades Cove!  Bears are often seen at the edge of the woods or in the fields near the wood.  You can watch bears from the comfort and saftey of your car if they are about.
