Stop it with the selfies!  Human interactions with bears at the Taylor Creek Visitor Center during the Kokanee salmon spawn have become a public safety concern.  The California Department of Fish and Wildlife, Nevada Department of Wildlife, and the U.S. Forest Service are partnering to get visitors to keep their distance when encountering bears.

Visitor center staff routinely encounter unsafe situations when guests ignore posted instructions and get close to bears to take photos and videos.  Bears are unpredictable wild animals and may attack if they feel threatened.  Wildlife authorities may kill bears if they attack people.

More information on visiting bear country can be found at this link
