National Public Radio is reporting that there’s a bear epidemic out West and it’s going to get worse. The claim is that human/bear encounters, up over 600% in some locations, are the result of a reduction in available natural food and as the seasons wear on, the problem will only get worse as bears normally pick up their eating activities in preparation of winter.

However, not one mention in this report of any possibility there just might be a tad too many bears now kicking around. Nah!
