Bear dominates Lake Tahoe ski race

Bear witness!

From the AP, via @DavidGrann:

Nevada Department of Wildlife spokesman Chris Healy says an unusually dry, mild winter in the Sierra has made some bears either not hibernate or partially hibernate.

He tells the Tahoe Daily Tribune that other bears out this time of year are what the department calls "urban interface" bears that don't hibernate if they have easy access to human food.

The black bear wandered right through the race without incident, meaning the Ski Free Abominable Snow Monster retains the title of Most Fearsome Slopes-Based Predator.
