The foothills above Monrovia are occupied by wildlife: bears, coyotes, deer, mountain lions, and bobcats. Sometimes these wild animals venture out of the foothills and into residential neighborhoods. Most of the time, the wildlife comes and goes without notice.

Over the last couple of weeks, the California Department of Fish & Wildlife has received a few reports concerning bears. These reports range from bear bites to reports of residents allegedly feeding the bears.  

On Thursday at 11 a.m., the California Department of Fish & Wildlife will present a “Living with Bears” webinar for the Monrovia community. During this meeting, Fish & Wildlife will share safety tips on how to coexist with bears, how they respond to calls, and much more. To join in on the webinar,  register in advance. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the Zoom meeting.

If you are unable to attend but have questions that you would like to ask, send those questions to pio@ci.monrovia.ca.us. A recording of the webinar will be available for viewing.
