Bear in a Bathtub…We’re Not Kidding
Nothing like a bath to start the morning.
These images were captured last October as part of a project by Associated Professor Justin Brashares of UC Berkeley at a research property in Hopland. Brashares explained the project is studying, “…the population dynamics of several large mammal species at the Center. Among other things, they hope to better understand the impacts of drought and fences on wildlife at HREC as an indicator of larger trends across the state.”
Apparently, fences don’t stop bears searching for baths.
