In case you didn't get your fill of bear news yesterday, here's another item we ran across today.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Stewart Breck, a research biologist with the National Wildlife Research Center has co-authored a study on the vehicle preferences of black bears that inhabit the Yosemite National Park.
The study, with the catchy title, "Selective Foraging for Anthropogenic Resources by Black Bears: Minivans in Yosemite National Park," was published in the October issue of Journal of Mammalogy.
"They target minivans," said Breck. "They will pop open windows, peel open a door, rip out back seats. They can do a lot of damage.You've been warned!
"Minivans were the first or second preference every year, accounting for 26 percent of all the break-ins. That's despite the fact that they make up only 7 percent of the vehicles parked in Yosemite Valley."
