Close encounters alarm campers near Young
The Tonto National Forest is issuing a temporary closure order for the Valentine Ridge Campground on the Pleasant Valley Ranger District due to repeated encounters between campers and bears. Bears have been looking for an easy meal and taking advantage of food being left out on picnic tables.
Rim Country campers sleep easy: The bears have vanished back into the deep woods, says the local Arizona Game and Fish office.
