In regards to the bear sightings, it seems that bear has been a big problem snatching food all night. My friend hiked it last week and said that all they could hear was banging pots and whistles to try and scare the bear away. The DOW showed up and they had decided to euthanize the bear. At 5:20 the next morning they heard a gun shot and they saw the DOW had shot the bear. Sad, but did make them sleep better.
