It's valuable to have some context to understand why this is happening. Bears aren't typically in a hurry to mess with people, but will interact in negative ways if there is a collapse in their food supply, a substantial encroachment in habitat, or sloppy human garbage habits that teach them an easy food source with inevitably disastrous consequences. From a survival perspective, the "why" gives us perspective on how to manage the risk.

+1. The behavior of the people involved would be helpful, as well, since that is often a contributing factor.

Not an attack but my boss posted a video on Slack; it was a big Cinnamon-phase Black Bear rummaging around down by the river pretty much in our yard at work. Beautiful animal! But I'm glad to see him on video instead of outside while I take out the trash. grin

interesting in Colorado it is illegal to shoot a bear or mountain lion that is attacking your dog, but Okay if attacking "livestock".
