The Bio-Urban Wilderness Interface

Three Yosemite bears killed by vehicles

Three Yosemite bears killed by vehicles in past three weeks,
November 16, 2017.

Bears getting hit by cars are regular occurances in places where a lot of people live, visit, or travel where there's lots of Bears. Hell, freeways kill local wildlife wherever they are, highways less, country roads yet less, and so on down the line of human density.
As there are way too many more people in California, and way too much growth and development, Bears have been put into ever increasing conflict not only with cars, but with their territories being bound by developments, which bring the distractions of dogs, of garbage food supplies altering all sorts of behaviors, and all the attractions of the modern kitchen, at exactly the same time global warming has screwed-up the timing of lots of their food sources as it shortens their hibernation, even ending the Winter Sleep for Bears in some locations. These factors are all the ingredients in the recipie for cooking up a disaster for Sierra Bears.

It's not surprising that Bear incidents in Yosemite have doubled in 2017.

Residents in Christmas Valley in South Tahoe reported various bears not hibernating years ago. I would not be surprised if we are watching the beginnings of deep climate-change induced changes in bear hibernation behavior.
