3. Brandon Ransom (Denver Water's manager of recreation), said in a blog post. "The current situation is not conducive for the safety of our visitors or the well-being of the wildlife." The park will reopen once the bears move away from the canyon. Do you agree with the parks decision to temporarily close down the park?

The park said if you must take a photo with a bear in the background, head to your local zoo instead. Or have a park ranger take a photo of you, keeping a respectful distance from the bears. Do you agree with the parks statement?
