More Bears and a Lion Too

According to this Reno Gazette Journal article, The Nevada Department of Wildlife has so far this year trapped 80 bears in an area stretching from Reno to south Douglas County and west to Lake Tahoe. Of those, eight were euthanized. Just recently, according to the article, a mother bear and two cubs were euthanized after breaking into homes in a subdivision south of Gardnerville. I had no idea this area supported so many bears!

Also, there is an alert over at News Carson City that there has been a Mountain Lion spotted on the west side of town (Ormsby and King). Great I say. Just great!

There has to be some downside to that gorgeous riding you get to enjoy every single day.

Maybe it's time to be packing some heat on your rides.

You never mentioned that someone could be killed or worse while riding those cool NV trails. Now that I think about it, I might be busy all of next June! :^)

On the plus side, I don't recall any injuries from said animals this year. We'll just have to learn to coexist I guess. But still there must be a backup plan. Hip Gun Holster or handlebar gun rack. Hmmm....
