Colorado State Department of Fish and Wildlife is advising hikers, hunters, fishermen, and golfers to take extra precautions and be on the alert for bears while in the Dillon, Breckenridge, and Keystone area.
The Colorado State Dept. of Wildlife advise you to wear noise-producing devices such as little bells on clothing to alert bears to your presence & carry pepper spray in case of an encounter with a bear. People should be able to recognize the difference between black bear and grizzly bear droppings. Black bear droppings are smaller and contain berries. Grizzly bear droppings have bells in them and smell of pepper spray.
