From KMGH-TV, Denver:
A bear that has entered tents in a campground near Aspen has prompted the Forest Service to close the campground to some campers.
The black bear has been looking for food in the Difficult Campground, 6 miles east of Aspen, according to White River National Forest District Ranger Scott Snelson.
“Bears and people do not mix well, especially when bears get used to people and their food,” Snelsen said. “To protect both people and bears, we are closing this campground to tents and soft-sided trailers until further notice.”
