Please do not use QAspen to report Bear activity. QAspen is not monitored 24/7. Reports made to QAspen may not be seen right away, particularly after normal business hours.
If you encounter a bear out-and-about in town, please remember they are wild animals. If a bear comes near your home, trail, or business, yell, blow a whistle, clap your hands, or make other loud noises. Never approach or corner a bear. If the bear remains and you feel it presents a threat, call the non-emergent dispatch line (970-920-5310) or 911 in an emergency.
