Wildlife experts say bears are in active hyperphasia stage in Colorado right now, meaning they’re excessively hungry and they are foraging for two hours a day.

The city is working with Colorado Parks and Wildlife and asking residents to visit the website BeHeardBoulder.org to share feedback about how to best prevent bears from getting into humans’ trash and limit the interactions bears have with humans.
