Several bears visit this family's couch every night

A gentleman in Steamboat Springs, Colorado has been attracting one or several bears to his deck every night.

While the family is in no hurry to get rid of the couch or the bears, Colorado Parks and Wildlife feels one should seek to keep bears away from your home.


Jason Clay with Colorado Parks and Wildlife said right now bears are just starting to prep for hibernation and they are eating around 20,000 calories a day. He said it's important to remember bears are wild animals. 

"If you have a bear comes around your home take action. It's the best for you and that bear too," Clay said.     

Clay said the best way to haze bears away from your home is to use air horns, car alarms or bear mace. If none of those tactics work he said it's best to contact CPW for help.

Be safe.
