BEAR MEETING MOVED FROM WOODLAND PARK TO COLORADO SPRINGS

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Due to the Waldo Canyon fire and the closure of Hwy. 24, a black bear management meeting previously scheduled for Woodland Park on Wednesday June 27 has been moved from Woodland Park to the Colorado Parks and Wildlife office in Colorado Springs.

During late June and July, Colorado wildlife managers will host public meetings in Colorado Springs and Canon City to provide information on bear management in Colorado. Managers will be soliciting input on how to maintain healthy bear populations while reducing bear conflicts. The updated plan will apply to Game Management Units in Park, Fremont, Teller, Pueblo and El Paso Counties.

"Colorado's wildlife belongs to all Coloradans," said wildlife biologist Julie Stiver. "We manage wildlife based on science and research, but public input is critical in helping us arrive at the best possible plans. We strongly urge Coloradans to participate in managing their wildlife."

Bear management plans will also consider input from various land management agencies.

At the meetings, members of the public can learn about the current and historic status of black bears around Pikes Peak and areas to the south and west. Wildlife managers will solicit public input on future objectives and management strategies, including trends in population size. Hunting will be the primary tool for meeting agreed-upon population objectives.

For more information, contact Stiver at 719-227-5225 or Julie.Stiver@state.co.us
