Drought May Be Bringing Bigger Animals into Santa Clarita

California is in one of the most severe droughts on record, a state of emergency has been declared by Governor Brown and water restrictions recently went into effect to help in the effort to conserve water.

Anecdotal evidence shows that effects of this severe drought has had a ripple effect on wildlife.

Because a bear study hasn’t been done in more than 4 decades knowledge about home ranges and resources that the bears might still have is minimal.

Scientist Rebecca Barboza says she has recently proposed the San Gabriel Mountains Black Bear study, funded by big game management, the study will provide factual information about bears that is otherwise unknown.

  3. You don’t say…. It is their home. Please no more new home construction! Already too crowded here!!!!!!!!!’

  4. The best part of living here…we have not yet obliterated all wildlife indigenous to the area…maybe we should put water and food stations where they dont need to come in to town for “takeout”…

    The animals know about the ice bucket challenge so they are headed to all the rain gutters searching for wasted water runoff.

  6. Jennifer Rashid says:

    people need to be aware that not only don’t leave food out but don’t leave your animals out, We forget that Mountain Lions are a feline and felines get the vast percent of their water from the meat the eat. This goes as well for the Bobcat. Please people don’t leave your cats and dogs unattended when you put them out if they need to potty watch them then bring them back inside especially at night.
