Black Bear

Once a year or so, a Black Bear will come down out of the wilderness to raid peoples garbage. Usually the houses farthest from the park are the first and Fish & Game removes the offender. Bears are pretty common in the breaks of the Snake River. Prepare to patiently sit, binoculars in hand, if you want to observe them. Not all Black Bears are black: Bears in our are are usually of the brown or cinnamon color, so they blend in well.
