A Drier Southwest Means More Bears Move to Town

Across the southwest more and more bears are showing up in people’s kitchens, garages and flower beds. Wildlife officials in Colorado say in that state alone they had to euthanize 133 “problem bears” last year. And in Arizona at least a dozen bears have been euthanized, and scores of sightings have many people rattled. Many bears are in search of food and water.
