We have even had Bears in Carson Valley! It's truly something that needs to be addressed! Enjoy this informative Blog!
It was not too long ago that I was going to a walk through on a home in the Lakeview Subdivision of Incline Village and low and behold, a HUGE bear comes sauntering across the street. I think he could care less that a large car was heading his way. He took his sweet time and then just walked to the neighbors house like he was a good friend coming over to play.
It's cute and we all get excited when we spy a bear, but they do not belong in the streets of Incline. It is not a good place for them. Although we live in Bear Country and need to be prepared for interaction with these creatures, if we could just learn how to protect them we would all be in a better place.
