DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – Wildlife is waking up from hibernation, so make sure you’re alert when hitting the trails this spring.

That’s the word from Colorado Parks and Wildlife, who posted a video of a bear out at Roxborough State Park.

Bears are frequently seen in the park, so it’s a good reminder to be alert when hiking.

“The wildlife are [also] certainly out and about at Staunton State Park,” the park posted to Facebook.

Staunton State Park is a short drive southwest of Denver.

The park’s wildlife camera recently captured a photo of a silver fox.

“The silver fox is actually a form of the red fox,” the park posted. “Silver foxes can range from being nearly completely black (absence of silver highlights) to very light, due to a very large amount of silver guard hairs.”
