(jason holley/california department of fish and wildlife) "bears will use a lake for water. they'll use it to cool off. in a drought situation like we're in - some of their natural streams are dried up. so they'll really rely on the lake more heavily during times of drought." and in this case...the bear league sent an observer to the lake...to make sure paddle boarders and others didn't get too close.

you to back away." and remember that bears are wild animals...no matter how cute they look.
