So far, it is just for a week or so. Maybe the park staff can discourage the bear and get it to leave. Hate to see it destroyed.

The lack of bear population management..i.e. hunting…is the problem. Land can carry only so many. Management by cuteness doesn’t work.

Interesting, wouldn't take much for one to destroy a hard sided RV either.

It's not a bear problem, it's a people problem. We've already decimated the bear population, no need to kill more.
