Forgive me for altering the words of this song. Perhaps the author didn't know that bears don't see terribly well, but wow can they smell! Los Alamos residents have been reporting an uptick in bear activity in town. Why? The short answer is “Humans.” That's right. Humans and our smells. I find it ironic that we label bears as “problem” “nuisance” “habituated” when in reality, we have created and perpetuated the problem. And we are the solution to keeping our property safe and bears alive.
