A large black bear often sleeps underneath this abandoned house in a residential neighborhood in South Lake Tahoe, California. Local Bear Expert Toogee Seilch, a volunteer for Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care helps to track and evict bears that have denned down under houses and on peoples property. This bear was captured via Camera Trap as he exited the crawlspace of this house shortly after dark. He/she sat at the entrance for 20-30 minutes before exiting, getting scared by the flashes, then backing back into the crawlspace before leaving a bit later.
