In Colorado and adjoining states north and south where we travel and camp we have had only one incident in many years of tent and trailer camping. That was due to our leaving the empty day trip cooler out overnight. Black bear opened it just to get at the smell. We still use that cooler, it has character in the form of tooth marks. We have a standard after dinner drill of clean up, trash to dumpster if available, all food of all types goes in coolers, then in the pickup cab and is covered by an old blanket. The biggest bear hazards in Colorado are in places like Aspen, Vail, and other resorts where tourists intentionally set food out to attract bears. They do not realize they are habituating the animals to unnatural food sources and making them lose their fear of humans. Bears then expect food and become aggressive to get it. Every year several bears are euthanized because of aggressive behavior. This goes on despite heavy fines for attracting the bears or other wildlife. Maybe we are euthanizing the wrong animals...…. End of sermon.
