https://www.denverpost.com/2021/05/03/colorado-bear-attack/ Woman in Durango was attacked and eaten Friday night. Female and her cubs. Other bears believed to be involved. It’s the hungry time in the Rockies. Bears have emerged from hibernation, but there’s not much food. It’s been snowing heavily up there for the last three days, for example. In my opinion, this is the only time of year that black bears are really dangerous unless you get between mama and her cubs. Two of our friends had horses attacked by a mountain lion at a barn on the eastern outskirts of Boulder last week. My woods walking carry this time of year is a 16” Rossi R92 in 45LC loaded with hot 250s. For me, it’s a good balance between weight and something that punches with force.
