CASTLE PINES, Colo. (KDVR) — As we go through spring, Colorado Parks and Wildlife says there are ways to attract birds without attracting bears.
On Tuesday, cellphone video surfaced of a sow and her two cubs roaming a subdivision in the Castle Pines area. It was the second time the trio had been spotted in three days.
A CPW spokesperson says bird baths and a bird garden are better options than a bird feeder, which will attract bears.
CPW says bird feeders are likely to attract bears from March through late November.
Nancy Browning says the bears entered her backyard early Sunday morning. Her dogs alerted her to their presence.
“You could tell they were frightened,” she says. “By whatever was out here.”
