Black Bear in San Andreas?

If you leave food or trash
outside, it will attract bears
and other wildlife.
   On September 25, 2014 around 6:40 AM someone called the Sheriff to report that a black bear was at the ball park in San Andreas. It probably smelled some type of food or water.

   They think it came from a nearby neighborhood.   Don't be surprised if you see wild animals nearby homes, as their natural food and water supply has been deprived due to the drought.

    If you report them, Fish and Wildlife Killers will destroy them, and enjoy it. Don't panic, just yell and wave your arms around. They are terrified of humans, and for good reason, since humans are the worst predator in the world.
