    We have one of the two permanent camps on Horseshoe Lake and we witnessed these sightings first hand at our camp and watched the Forest Ranger shoot rubber bullets at her from our property the cubs are pretty cool to watch.

    Rangers are closing the campsites on Moss Lake, off Big Moose Rd, due to bear activity.
    I believe it started today.

    I agree leave the bears alone! It’s their home and have every right to be there! We just keep taking and taking from them.

    I agree …leave the bears alone. They are obviously very Hungary. People just keep encroaching on the wilderness. The animals have no place to go anymore.

    If certain trails can be closed during mud season why can’t selected camps sites be closed during this time when wildlife need their space? It seems simple. Sometimes old ways need to be changed.
    There are plenty of places for humans to go.
