Keep your eyes open friends. Colorado wildlife officials are reporting an increase in black bear activity in the greater Denver area.

What’s up: Our furry friends are preparing for hibernation – and they are packing up the pounds to prepare.

That means they spend up to 20 hours a day storing 20,000 calories wherever they can find them.

Game Status: About 50 sightings were reported in and around Denver between September 1 and October 14, according to Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials. But more activity is expected as winter approaches.

  • On October 8, rangers relocated a bear from the University Park neighborhood of Denver.

Be Smart: If you come across a cute chonker within the city limits, report the sighting to local authorities.
