Hey everyone! An interesting day of events in the area, indeed. I think the 2 bear sightings were the same bear, since it was on the same street. It has been a couple weeks since any bears have been seen, I guess they were staying low-key for a while. In other news, a man called 911 wanting to go to jail. Wow, that is a new one, usually people don't want to go to jail! He must have been very drunk.

Bears are around, just not trying to get in the house at present.
See our neighborhood pest strolling in the yard a week ago:

40500 Block of Steamboat Drive. That's my street in Steamboat II and calling 911 isn't going to do a thing to fix the problem.

The bears are there because everyone leaves their trash sitting outside their house for days at a time. I've asked and there is no ordinance or law against it so the Sherrif's office says they are powerless to do anything. They can't and won't tell anyone to put their garbage indoors or in a bear proof container.

We've lived there six years and last summer was the first time we've seen a bear. As the population of our County grows over the next few decades we need to have a trash ordinance that can be enforced anywhere that bears are a problem, not just in the city limits.

Yea nothing better to do than call 911 except maybe comment on the record.

Lots of calls from Blue Sage Drive.

Who is the paranoid personality in there that can't avoid calling the cops for, like, maybe one day?

The gas leak was probably methane from the wet area. Or maybe from that loose dog that's always out over there . . .

The dog that was gone when officers showed up-=He probably got ate by the bear. Yum-Yum!

Yea the dog might have been eaten up. Yea I think many people just call, they have nothing better to do, no job, no relationships of any kind, and they feel good when they rat on someone or a poor animal just strolling down the road!
