Summary:
Black bears in the Californian Sierra Nevada could be more likely to encounter humans as their natural food sources are threatened, according to an article published. Researchers used GPS collars to track the movements of black bears in Sequoia National Park while measuring the their natural food levels. By tracking the bears’ movements, researchers were able to relate the levels of food available to the bears, to their whereabouts at different times of the year.
