Colorado Parks and Wildlife urging Lyons businesses to bear-proof their trash bins
DENVER -- Last week, after a bear tried to steal a dumpster from a pot shop in Lyons, there were a lot of questions about the fate of the animal. According to Colorado Parks and Wildlife, they are aware of two to three bears frequently visiting dumpsters behind the shops on Main Street. In fact, spokesman Jason Clay says they have had 22 bear reports in Lyons since April. Fourteen of those involved trash.
