GSMNP NPS Goes CSI

Rogue bears in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park beware, the NPS now employs “CSI” tactics in response to bear attacks by resident bruin trouble makers. In what amounts to an innocence project for bears, NPS operatives have turned to modern forensic technology, including establishing DNA evidence data base to make sure they don't kill the wrong bear when a human is attacked in the mountains. Twice in the last two years the Park Service executed bears in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park only to find out through DNA evidence afterward it had the wrong suspects.

At this time submission for testing by bears is entirely voluntary. Bears showing up to blood work will receive a fully stocked picnic basket and red bandana to show Black Bear Lives Matter. At this time domesticated bears and those bears that are undocumented (i.e., “no Green Card), are not allowed into the DNA Data Base Program. 

Virginia Does It Right For Dad’s Day

The Fishing Wire reports that just in time for Father’s Day Weekend, a special event is planned for Big Tumbling Creek located at the Clinch Mountain Fee Fishing Area for June 13, 15, 17, & 18. A special brook trout stocking to include more than 500 trophy sized trout stocked throughout the week, will test the skills of anglers of all ages. Two barrier-free trails are now open for limited mobility anglers. A daily permit ($8) is required of anglers; however, children 12 and under may fish without a permit as long as they are accompanied by a permitted adult and their combined creel does not exceed that of the adult (6 trout).
