Living in Harmony with the Wildlife in Lake Tahoe

Book written by Lori Howell Thompson

Being the proud author of this book, I deeply admire LTWC and Toogee Sielsch for their devotion, love, and care for the wildlife they rescue, rehabilitate, and release. In “Living in Harmony with the Wildlife in Lake Tahoe” the mission is to educate everyone on the importance of understanding wildlife and how to safely enjoy beautiful Lake Tahoe.

In the Bear’s Tale section of the book, there are stories of popular well-loved bears and their cubs that have captured the hearts of the locals. The locals, Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care, and other organizations have great pride and respect for the wildlife in Tahoe. The wildlife is part of their family and community.

Excerpt from the Book

Do you know what to do when you encounter a bear? See if what you think you should do in a bear encounter is what Lori instructs everyone to do.

When there is a bear encounter, humans are to not run, slowly back up and walk away. It’s a bear’s natural instinct to chase. If in your home, do not try and chase the bear out, their natural instance is to go out the same way they entered. The bears are quite docile with a natural instinct to flight rather than fight.
