Eeeyew! Well, that was 40 years ago this year, and I'm still around!kingsnake wrote:@azbackpackr If it had been a grizzly, the VW Bug would have been the cooler full of food ... ;)
There are plenty around to see. I can't think of many places in AZ I haven't seen one, especially when I'm out alone. You can find them at higher elevations in the Supes, in a lot of the mountains around Tucson. (That's one reason there are designated campsites with bear boxes in Saguaro National Park. I have a photo of one with a good bear paw imprint; sometimes they slap the doors to make them pop open.) There are plenty of bears in the Galiuros, and almost everywhere that's forested in Rim country. The Sierra Ancha typically has more bear scat per trail mile than almost anywhere I've been.Jason Cleghorn wrote:How often does HAZ see bears here in AZ, and where?

I agree...Trust me Jason, if the Bear stays where it is and can't find a way back over the Canal and back to it's more Native Habitat, then eventually it will end up in a more Populated area than it is now and they may not have the Luxury at that point of actually using a Tranq. Way better to relocate it now...Safer, less stressful, and chances are very high for a good outcome...that may not be the Case later if they do nothing...chumley wrote:If it was on the east side of the canal, I would say let it be. But on the west side, it would be more difficult for it to find one of those three canal crossings to get back toward the mountains.
