" 'Bear sighted at Coal Oil Point Reserve' By ERIC LINDBERG — June 3, 2009 When the director of the Coal Oil Point Reserve took a quick glance from her residence at the 158-acre coastal locale yesterday morning, an unexpected sight caught her attention. “Imagine the surprise — you look out the window and see a black bear having a bath in the ocean,” Cristina Sandoval said. Docents who work with the snowy plover protection program also spotted the adult bear slowly rumbling into the dunes, heading north toward the mountains, she said. “We’re not sure if it’s still in the reserve,” Sandoval said. Having consulted with a Department of Fish & Game representative, the reserve director said there appears to be little cause for concern about the presence of the creature. She recalled a similar occurrence last summer, when a black bear was spotted roaming the marshes near UC Santa Barbara’s Harder Stadium. That event presented more of a public safety concern, and state game officials spent several days monitoring the situation until determining the bear had likely wandered up Winchester Canyon. As far as the bear sighting on the reserve, the director said game officials probably won’t get involved unless local law enforcement agencies request their help due to public safety concerns. “Bears are so non-aggressive,” she added. “I think people may have a little bit of panic about it because it’s such a big creature.” Sandoval said she is excited to know there is still a wildlife corridor connecting the foothill and mountain habitats to the coastal reserve, which has been somewhat isolated by development and Highway 101.
