ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - Ranger Scott Snelson tells The Aspen Daily News that wildlife officials hadn't heard of any human-bear conflicts since the ban was enacted in the Difficult Campground area in May. Campers had reported several sightings of a black bear in the area.

Forest Service officials say campers should keep unattended food and coolers in a bear box or locked vehicle, and all garbage must be disposed of in trash containers. Food and cooking equipment should be stored in enclosed vehicles when not in use.
