A bear has broken into eight homes in Yosemite National Park this week. Rangers say a 220 pound black bear was attracted to bird seed and other food that was not locked up at homes in North Wawona. They used a trap to catch the bear last weekend, and moved him to another area, but he came back.

Now, rangers are reminding everyone to lock up all food and other items that have a scent to keep the bear away. But they say, the park is still safe for residents and visitors.
