“We kept getting reports of trash being strewn all over Fairplay Beach,” said Fairplay Mayor Frank Just. “It had the look of vandalism so we assumed it a group of kids or something.”

The kids in Fairplay are officially off the hook. The bear, meanwhile, is being closely monitored by the Colorado Department of Wildlife, which is taking steps to deter the bear from raiding the town’s trashcans.
