Black bears crash student dorms: Black bears at Sierra Nevada College have adapted to student life on the Tahoe campus a little too well, the college's newspaper Eagle’s Eye reports. The bears have learned how to open windows and raid students’ dorm rooms for food. Students say that a bear will break into their house -- sometimes on multiple occasions in one week. And bears seem to have adjusted their hibernation schedule around trash day. Bears will raid garbage cans for a day or two and then hibernate the rest of the week, the Nevada Department of Wildlife says.


The original article is Sierra Nevada College Eagle. It includes the sad picture of a student teaching a bear that dorm rooms have food available for them.

Maybe putting trash out for the bears to eat just isn't a good idea?

I think the bears would disagree with that.
