The Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) was severely criticized for their handling of Cloud. The target of their criticism is Carl Lackey, a black bear researcher for NDOW.
Facebook pages that admire bears, such as Bear League and Wall of Shame, want Carl Lackey to resign. They feel that bears aren't the problem, people are the problem. They think NDOW policies are anti bear.
A citizen group called Bear League reminds everyone that "never has a single person been killed by a black bear in California, Nevada, or Oregon".
Bear League bear tips for the home.
Never feed bears
Bird feeders attract bears so take them down or make them inaccessible.
Keep all doors and windows closed.
Double pane windows are better than single pane.
Leave lights and TV/Radio on when not at home.
Don't leave any garbage near the house.
Make noise or use a horn when bears enter your property.
