Lake Tahoe: Bear Encounters 'Out Of Control' This Year (VIDEO)

In Lake Tahoe, bear encounters are occurring at an unusually high rate this year, KCRA reports (via CNN).

Bear break-ins and other encounters are flooding the phone lines at the Tahoe Bear League with 150-200 calls a day, and Nevada wildlife officials report having killed 13 bears so far this year, three times the usual number.

"This season has been the worst I have ever endured," Ann Bryan of the Tahoe Bear League says. "It's just out of control."
