STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Officials in Steamboat Springs are warning residents that bear activity is picking up.

The Steamboat Pilot & Today reports ( ) that bears got into or attempted to get into three homes on Monday.

At the second home, a bear knocked the box fan out of a main-level window and got partially into the home before it was scared away by the resident.

At the third home, a bear came through a kitchen door, ate some bread and spices before being scared away by the resident.
