Black Bear Eating Dandelions at Indian Creek Campground, Yellowstone National Park

My wife and I have been volunteer campground hosts at Indian Creek Campground in Yellowstone National Park. A big part of our job is to educate campers on food storage and bear safety. This cinnamon colored black bear is a frequent visitor to our area of the park. Her demeanor and cuteness factor make it difficult to convince some people that she can be dangerous. However, it is for those reasons that we are as careful as we are in insisting that our visitors follow the rules so she and all other bears in the area don't get into trouble. It is hard to say whether we are more proud to be educating the public or protecting the wildlife. She is a very special part of this great park.
