A couple of guys may have gone snowmobiling on Independence Pass outside of Aspen. It’s illegal at all times in the wilderness there. Right now, there’s no snow, which makes it even worse. The Aspen Times is reporting the U.S. Forest Service is investigating the snowmobilers because they posted pictures of themselves doing it on social media. If someone is convicted of operating a snowmobile on a closed portion of the national forest, the penalty is a fine of $250 to $5,000.


A bear had to be put down by wildlife officials in Steamboat Springs. On one day last week, the bear got into two garages, three closed cars, and multiple trash cans, in a neighborhood near the ski area. Kris Middledorf with Colorado Parks and Wildlife says the bear was euthanized because of the extensive damage it caused, and its lack of fear toward humans. He didn’t think the bear could successfully be relocated.
