Wow, a new one! A truck was following skateborders. Give me a break here! What was the truck supposed to do? Take an alternate route and let the skaters have the whole road to themselves. I mean these kinds of reports you can only get in Steamboat, but then again it does make for great reading lol!!

I can't wait for the day the police read a dog or a bear their Miranda rights, and next thing you know the animal is out the door or window, when they say freeze, don't move. Can you imagine the look on a dog's face when they are in someone's garage or yard when the authorities arrive. Animals are smart, and on this day they were cunning and not seen by human eyes.

Maybe bears are pulling the alarms? You never know in Steamboat. The bears are so elusive here!!

Wow... Maybe the DOW could go down around Craig and gather up all the elk carcasses from the elk they let starve to death and bring up to Steamboat and feed the hungry bears since there is so much snow. That way the elk loss wouldn't be quite so bad,and the bears wouldn't be such a problem.
