INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — This week’s question: Do you feel there’s a black bear problem at Tahoe-Truckee?

Here are the responses, as asked Monday in Incline Village:

CJ Johnson, self employed, Incline Village: “I don’t know … I think there is a trash issue in the Tahoe region. It’s attracting them to where we are, and as stewards of our environment, we have a responsibility to take care of that.”

Danielle Halstead, business owner, Incline Village: “I don’t think there’s too much of a problem because they are not aggressive. They don’t hurt you, and we don’t have to fear them.”

Rob Green, financial planner, Incline Village: “I fear that there is one. I hope there’s not, but I saw three bears in the month of August. It seems excessively high.”

Larry Aynesmith, Realtor, musician: Incline Village: “There is an issue. There has to be a better accommodation for people and bears. We have to be concerned for everybody’s (safety), so I think there has to be measures on both sides.”
