Bear sightings increase; Game and Fish reminds public to be bear aware

healthy on the inside as you are on the outside
TUCSON, Ariz. – The Arizona Game and Fish Department continues to closely monitor bear activity in southeastern Arizona given multiple sighting throughout the region this year. A yearling black bear is suspected of blowing an electrical transformer after climbing a tree at 11 p.m. Thursday in the York Valley area between Duncan and Clifton. The bear ran to a trailer park and homes afterward before being scared off by law enforcement. The bear may have been observed there on other occasions recently. The weekend of May 10-11, a female bear and two cubs may have killed up to 16 chickens at a bed and breakfast place in Aravaipa Canyon. The property owner subsequently agreed to secure the remaining chickens overnight and removed tree fruit and other attractants from the property. Hikers observed one or more bears in the area on two occasions previously this month. Another bed and breakfast in the Huachuca Mountains was visited by a bear May 8 but was then chased away by

the property owner’s dogs. Earlier this year, a black bear was sighted within 100 feet of the Peppersauce campground. The campers abandoned the camp and reported the sighting. In addition, a hunter reported sighting a female bear and cub on Ft. Huachuca in January. Bears were observed sporadically during the winter months in southeastern Arizona, suggesting that warmer weather may have shortened annual hibernations, from which black bears typically emerge in March, usually males before females. In addition, consecutive dry winters and intermittent seasonal rains, coupled with lingering environmental impacts from the Monument and Horseshoe Two fires, suggest that there may be more cases of bears visiting residential areas this year. Game and Fish fielded approximately 100 bear calls between mid-July and mid-October 2012 because of bears foraging in residential neighborhoods of greater Sierra Vista after the Monument Fire. “Bears in search of food are often attracted to homes and into proximity with people, which puts both at risk. Most conflicts are caused by people unintentionally feeding bears, often by allowing them access to household garbage, bird feeders, garden areas or trees bearing fruit,” said Regional Supervisor Raul Vega of Game and Fish in Tucson. “Fed bears can lose their fear of humans and begin to associate humans with food, sometimes causing property damage and even injuring people. But conflicts between humans and bears are preventable.” Since garbage stored outside is the biggest attractant, storing garbage in a secure garage or shed until the morning of collection will virtually eliminate the chances of a bear visit. If a bear does not find a food source, it will move on. Campers should never take food into a tent, use deodorizing sprays if storing food in cars when a bearproof box is not available on-site, and clean themselves off thoroughly after cooking as well as change clothes afterward that may have lingering odors. Fences, lighting and dogs have not been found to be effective, long-term deterrents when foods are available. Bears are good climbers, so to reduce a bear’s ability to get over a fence, it should be at least six feet tall and constructed of non-climbable material. Recognizing the potential risk to both humans and bears, the Arizona Game and Fish Department spends considerable time and money each year relocating bears. Unfortunately, this effort does little for the bears or homeowners. Some bears must be destroyed because they are considered too dangerous, have lost their fear of humans, or continue to get into conflicts with people. Following removal or relocation, the homeowner might experience more problems from a different bear if the identified attractant is not eliminated. Relocating a bear is also traumatic for the animal and does not guarantee it will live. Some are killed by larger, older bears that have established territory in an area. If a bear is in your yard or neighborhood or campground and refuses to leave, immediately contact the Game and Fish office at 520-628-5376 or at 1-800Continued on page 17

Lady Bearcats stunned in semis
By Andrew Luberda Copper Basin News The 4th-seeded Bearcats softball team was upset by 9th-seeded Valley Christian in last Friday night’s Division IV semifinal game, 5 – 0. The ‘Cats, who entered the game riding a nine-game winning streak, were one win away from playing for the state title. “It wasn’t our best game of the year,” said Bearcats’ head coach Rikki Galka. “Somebody has to lose. We had a good season.” The Bearcats’ offense had an uncharacteristically poor performance at the plate, striking out 16 times in the game. Stormee Galka had the team’s lone hit.
The Trojans broke a scoreless game in the third, scoring one run to take the lead. They followed by loading the bases with two outs and Jez Graf facing Bearcats’ pitcher Stormee Galka. Graf crushed an 0-2 pitch over the wall in left-center for a grand slam and gave the Trojans a 5 – 0 lead. “Yeah, that’s never happened,” Stormee Galka answered when asked if she was stunned Graf hit the 0-2 pitch out. “No one has ever hit (a homerun) off me before. It was a riseball and she just caught it perfect.” That one pitch seemed to sap the energy out the Bearcats, which could account for their poor offensive performance. “Oh, definitely,” said head coach
Rikki Galka, acknowledging her team appeared demoralized after the five-run inning. “It just drained them. That’s the first time I’ve seen our team really look like that. They don’t really get down on themselves. They just fight back but they didn’t this time.” The Bearcats didn’t just expect to reach the Championship Game, they expected to win it. They were one of the hottest teams entering the state tournament and were one of only three teams to defeat the eventual State Champion San Manuel Miners during the season. The Miners won 23 of their last 24 games, including the State Championship game. Their lone loss during that span came against the Bearcats. Despite the loss, Rikki Galka was proud
of her team’s performance all year. “It was, it was the best season,” Galka answered when asked if this season was the most fun for her as a coach. “Every one of the girls is a great kid and they work hard.” The Bearcats will lose six seniors this year, but they have a number of experienced players returning. A group of talented youth players is on the way as well. The ‘Cats are reloading not rebuilding. “I’m looking forward to the next few years,” Rikki Galka said. “We have a chance to be better than we were this year.” “We have a lot going for us next year,” said Stormee Galka, agreeing with her mom. “We should be very strong.”
