Looks like they're coming back. I knew they were getting worse in Big Bend, but now one showed up in Garden City, Texas today. Parks & Wildlife guys are trying to find it, I think they're just going to tag it.

FYI - Garden City is 340 miles east of El Paso, and 317 miles west of Dallas.

I wonder if it escaped from one of those pay to kill ranches in Texas?

Never heard of a high fenced ranch offering bear hunts. Maybe there is one though. A buddy of mine saw a mountain lion one night in the same area, between some cotton fields.
