Springfield Colorado
Local Wild life

Once in a while the wild life will venture into town and some actually live here on a regular basis. If you leave dog food sitting out on your porch for you pooch, and he does not eat it all up, you may have a skunk who decides to move in under your house.

Bear climbs Power Line in Walsh CO

Bearly Hanging On

Baca Weekly, May 24, 2006

A rare site in Baca County, a brown bear was sitting on top of a highline pole just north of Walsh on Friday, May 19. (2006)

A call was recieved at Walsh Town hall at about 8:00 a.m. reporting the bear on top of highline pole on County Road 43. Soon an audience had congregated to witness this unusual scene. The Colorado Division of Wildlife arrived at about 9:00 a.m. to assist with the rescue of the bear. The bear, who was extremely nervous, calmed after the Wildlife officials established a 3/4 mile perimeter to clear the area.

The bear climbed down from the pole about 1:00 p.m. short of the 3:00 p.m. deadline the DOW had established to tranquilize the bear. After climbing down the bear headed northeast, and the DOW followed to ensure the bear stayed out of trouble.
