In the median of I-5.
They are attempting to get him to enter a humane trap.
It is baited with - rotting fish, apples, bananas, fruit tarts, maple syrup, donuts, honey, bacon fat...
So far the bear isn't interested. Drivers are urged to call 911 if he ends up on the freeway but not
if they spot him in the median.
As a kid we were all good bear dodgers as they would come into town and wander around. You just cut thru to an alley or turned around. When they were on the porch you just let them smorgasbord thru the garbage.
