Pass the pepper spray, please

Heads up if you’re riding in the area of the Campbell Creek Bridge / Homestead and Viewpoint trail intersection during the next day or two.

I received an alert this afternoon from folks at Parks & Rec saying a runner pushing her kid in a jogging stroller was charged there yesterday afternoon by a large black bear with three cubs. The bear charged twice to a range of about five feet. Yeah. Five feet. That’ll pucker ya right up.

Land managers are putting up signs and trying to determine whether the sow’s just passing through, or hanging around.
