(CBS4) – Colorado Parks and Wildfire have been busy lately with multiple bear sightings and a recent relocation. CPW shared video of one such relocation of a bear from Boulder on Saturday.
Officers say the female yearling was already relocated once in May. It got into some people’s trash cans and was starting to show an indifference to humans.READ MORE: Child Hospitalized For Dehydration After Long Delays On Southwest Airlines Flight
Wildlife officers in #Boulder are relocating this yearling female bear out of the Fraiser Meadows area today.
Here, wildlife offers work to wake the bear from the sedation. The ice is there to help keep it cool. It’s now headed back to the mountains for release in a remote area. pic.twitter.com/DrXPXFgi4F

They say relocation isn’t foolproof. Officers later shared a picture of feces left behind from this bear inside the transportation trailer. In the feces were candy wrappers, bird seed and parts of a trash bag.
“Residents need to be sure to secure their trash so we can reduce bear-human conflicts,” they stated.
On another occasion, a resident in Genesee made sure to let a bear know it isn’t welcome by setting off the car alarm.READ MORE: Lack Of Staffing & Supplies Keeping Splash Pads Running Dry
