Lions and Tigers and Bears

Okay, maybe not tigers unless you count the Tiger Salamander. Most locals do know mountain lions are a commons sight in the hills of Sonoma County. On August 2nd, a black bear was caught on a wildlife camera up in Sugarloaf State Park wandering the trails about 6pm.

 

 

Wildlife experts say bear do wander in the hills between Sonoma and Napa Counties, although they are rarely seen. The presence of bear in the park is good indicator of a healthy park that is able to support a diverse population of wildlife.

 

Bear experts say black bear are shy however it is recommended you avoid them should you know they are in the area. The best prevention is to make noise while hiking so a bear will have time to run and hide without being surprised or feeling trapped in by an unsuspecting hiker.
