Monday, May 21, 2018 | View PDF

Lake Tahoe, Calif./Nev.  – Lake Tahoe agencies remind residents and visitors to practice proper food storage and trash disposal at all times while in bear country.  Intentional or unintentional feeding of bears can result in the bear being killed, fines and/or jail time for violators.  Every year law enforcement and state wildlife officers respond to hundreds of calls in which bears may pose a public safety threat and/or are damaging property.  In some cases, the animals are euthanized.  Become part of the solution and help us save our Tahoe bears!
