As a follow up, I spoke with the Monte Vista DOW office and gave them the details about the bear activity. They will notify the appropriate ranger. This issue is clearly a human problem, not a bear problem. They euthanized a different bear two years ago because of similar issues. I know tents were ransacked last year also. Human carelessness has turned this into an issue that is likely renewing itself each year. Be responsible and educate yourself about bear country techniques if you are unfamiliar with them. Most importantly, please use a canister.
