Bear Sighting

In recent weeks there has been many sightings of bears around Mt Hopkins and the observatory, including a family of three. They are often seen up in the trees munching on the ripe nuts.

On Monday morning as the day crew drove up to start their day they encountered a bear hanging out enjoying the sunshine on a rock near the road. The bear was happy to sit while Ben took a great video from the safety of his truck.

Although these bears appear to be relaxed around human presence remember they are wild animals and should be observed from a safe distance!
