With the cold winter months just around the corner, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) is partnering with the BEAR League to urge Tahoe residents, businesses and cabin owners to remember to bear-proof their properties.
This time of year, black bears are trying to consume as many calories as possible and are looking for that ideal spot for their winter hibernation. Unfortunately, bears are often attracted to crawl spaces under people’s homes because they are quiet, secluded, dark, dry and out of the wind.
“As far as a bear is concerned, an opening to a house’s crawl space is an open invitation to set up a den in an ideal location,” warns Marc Kenyon, CDFW’s human-wildlife conflict program coordinator. “Bears are incredibly strong and can fit into very small places. We’ve seen bears gain access to well-stocked cupboards from under the floorboards.”

I'm thinking there is boarding room for bears at Markskor's place, and Maybe TahoeJeff will open up a den-ing facility..
