"They can attack," he said. Most often, they will attack over food, or if a per- son comes between a sow and her cubs. "The mothers are very pro- tective of their young," he said. For example, Peters said he is aware of a sow and her two cubs who are frequenting a Lake Almanor PG&E camp- ground. "People need to stay away from them," he said. Peters said he gets calls al- most daily about bear sight- ings, and he blames it on garbage. "If people don't leave food out, we won't see black bears," he said. Peters said that, no matter the color locally, all of the bears that people are report- ing are black bears. ~:r residents and Who are interested to create an Indi- Building Depart- re invited to bring and com- SPecial meeting 31, at 7 p.m., in Hall. arrangements for a raeeting had to be re than three it, Indi- ty Ser- directors took to form their department Y, uniform COdes for build-. ig, mechanical ago, director )rought the after receiv- about permit the building his Own problems with the county building de- partment, as well.
