CANON CITY, Colo. (CBS4) – The Fremont County Sheriff’s Office has a warning about bears.

Sunday night, one of their deputies caught a bear tearing up trash cans in Canon City.

The department posted video of the encounter, reminding homeowners that bear season is still going. They’re not yet hibernating. So it’s important to secure your trash cans, keep them inside until morning, and use bear proof bins.

With their video, they offered several tips on how to keep both you and the bears safe.

Thankfully nothing bad happened with this bear, the department notes, saying he went away on his own.
