DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – After a long snooze, bears are starting to wake up from their winter slumber. In northwest Douglas County, a bear recently triggered a security camera as it wandered around the neighborhood.
Bears are becoming active across the state, like this one from northwest Douglas County. Please put away those birdfeeders until after Thanksgiving & secure your trash. That means not putting it out to the curb until the morning of collection.
