bears

Good morning,
So, the bears are still around, and game and fish will not relocate for now.
It was suggested that a mixture of ammonia and water 50/50 will keep bears away from your deck. Please be careful!

bear sightings

There have been multiple sightings of a male bear and sow with 2 cubs. Several people are concerned with the shooting going on in the neighborhood. Other than personal safety, DO NOT SHOOT in our neighborhood. It is UNLAWFUL to discharge a firearm within 150 yards of a home or road, and incredibly dangerous in close quarters of other homes. Not to mention a wounded bear is a dangerous bear. I have attached a helpful document on "keeping bears alive, and you safe". It has several numbers for Game and Fish. I am notifying them about our neighborhood situation.

Restrictions End Tomorrow on Santa Fe National Forest

Bad news-------Campfires are permitted!!!

SANTA FE, NM – July 13, 2017 – For Immediate Release. Thanks to recent precipitation and decreasing fire danger, the Santa Fe National Forest will lift campfire and smoking restrictions on Friday, July 14, at 8:00 a.m. The forest implemented Stage 1 fire restrictions on June 23 based on dry conditions and higher-than-normal temperatures.

Bears are Out!

David Stuedel (SLP Homeowner) caught this bear with his security cam at 1:13 in the afternoon yesterday.

Jan Studebaker also saw a mature bear crossing Highway 4 on the way to Los Alamos.

Gathering Monsoon Both Decreases and Increases Fire Danger

A couple of lightning caused fires that have broken out currently suggest a different pattern of fire danger emerging. The forests are still dry and ready to ignite at any carelessly flicked cigarette butt or abandoned campfire, but the recent weather has brought with it some increased moisture in the forests together with instances of dry lightning storms.
