A brown bear was captured frolicking in the snow at the Roxborough State Park. One of the videos from Colorado Parks and Wildlife captured the bear seemingly active and searching for food in Douglas County.

During the fall months, ears eat and drink nonstop in order to prepare for their winter hibernation. They need to put on weight for them to hibernate properly and this process is called hyperphagia.

Hyperphagia makes bears active during the fall season so that they could hunt and prepare for their hibernation.

Everyone is however advised not to feed the bears any human food as the bears might lose interest in the natural food sources and it can also lead to it losing its fear of humans leading to more human attacks in the future.

Make sure to clean everything when eating in the state parks and to store food properly so as not to give off fragrances that might attract bears that are hunting and preparing for their hibernation.
