    takashiさんが、ハイキング中に出会ったクマの親子の写真を送ってくださいました。かわいいですね。
    日時  2008年6月23日月曜日 午後1時20分過ぎ。
    場所  パノラマトレールをグレーシャーポイントからネバタ滝に向かい、イリルエット滝の手前10分ほど手前の下り斜面。
    *こういう状況で出会ったときは必ず距離を保って、静かに見守るようにしましょう。母クマを嚇かすような行為は危険です。にしむら注

    Weekly Bear Activity
    VALLEY:
    The last few weeks we have seen bears out during the day eating apples at the orchards every day. There are bears in meadows, bears in berry bushes, and bears in the river. Most of these bears are doing natural things, but unfortunately many of these bears are eating apples or berries in the middle of parking lots or campgrounds. Also during the day, bears have been in picnic areas, attempting to scare visitors off their food. If a bear approaches you while picnicking, yell at it and make as much noise as possible to scare it away.

    At night, we continue to see bears in all Valley Campgrounds. Bears have been very active breaking into cars at Yosemite Lodge, Camp 4, Curry Village, and the Ahwahnee. They are breaking for very little food, sometimes as little as a baby seat with food smashed into it. [Yosemite Lodge, Camp 4, Curry Village, and the Ahwahneeで熊の活動が活発。、また、かなり小さな食料が残っていても、熊は車を壊すようです。]
    There are also bears active in Curry Village. They are obtaining trash from overflowing trash cans on a pretty regular basis. A bear also tore through an unoccupied tent cabin to obtain apples a visitor left inside. Remember to use your new bear locker and put all food and scented items inside 24 hours a day.
    BACKCOUNTRY:
    We are also getting reports from numerous backcountry locations, including Young Lakes, Glen Aulin, Little Yosemite Valley and Sunrise Creek on the JMT.

    OTHER LOCATIONS:
    Bears have been active at Tenaya Lake picnic area, again trying to scare visitors off their food. They have also been very active at Yosemite Creek and White Wolf Campgrounds.

    Amazing bear fact:
    A common question these days with bears in the orchard is, “Will the bear fall out of the tree?” The quick answer is no. Bears are excellent tree climbers. They are very agile and can easily spend a whole day in an apple tree, alternating between eating and sleeping. Bears also climb trees to get away from something they perceive as dangerous.
    SLOW DOWN!:
    8 bears have been hit by cars already this year. (S. Lisius – 8/6/07)
    と、様々な熊関連のことが書いてありますが、知る限りヨセミテで人が熊に襲われた話は聞いたことがありません。


  • 熊横断に注意

    以前は、白い紙に赤い線で描いた熊の絵が、ロードマーカーに貼ってありましたが、つい最近新しいサインボードに変わったようです。最初遠目に見たときは、『牛の横断に注意』サインかと思いました。このサインがおいてある場所と、レーダーによるスピード違反取り締まりスポットは高い相関があるのでご注意。

    上から2番目と下から2番目は要注意ですね。
    前者に関しては、たまにずさんにロックしたBoxを見かけます。熊も賢いので、開け方をかなり学んでいるんでしょうか。後者は油断も隙もないというところでしょうか。食料の入ったパックを横においておき、滝などに見とれていると奪われてしまうといった感じですか…

    ヨセミテバレーでよく見かける哺乳動物です。
    特に夜のカリービレッジには頻繁に出没します。(夜行性でしょう)
    人間に慣れてしまっているのか、物怖じせずに近寄ってきますが、
    カワイイといって食べ物を与えてはいけません。
