Bears are very active in Yosemite Valley. They are emerging from their winter dens and are very hungry. Bears have been seen in all areas of the Valley including the meadows where they are currently foraging on grasses.

One bear has been hit by a car this year! Twenty six bears were hit by cars last year, along with an unknown number of deer, squirrels and other park animals. Slow down and save Yosemite’s wildlife.

Coyotes? I would guess none. The Trickster is really smart.

How many on this board have:

C1: Raised a joey
C2: Raised a coyote pup
C3: Met a dingo in the wild?

Would submit a Venn diagram, but I'm too fat & lazy.

The body betrays and the weather conspires, hopefully, not on the same day.

Hiking in the Lyell Canyon about 7 years ago, saw a coyote in the brush on the other side of the river.
