Be Bear Aware When Outdoors This Spring

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, APRIL 21, 2016:

Be bear aware when outdoors this spring

Black bear

SANTA FE – Spring is in the air, and as people and wildlife become more active outdoors the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish is encouraging everyone to be aware of the potential of encountering bears and other native wildlife.

Young bears are emerging from hibernation and will be foraging and seeking territory to call their own, said Rick Winslow, the department’s bear and cougar biologist. Sows with cubs will follow later in May. Those living in urban-wildland interface areas such as the foothills around Santa Fe or Albuquerque may have a greater chance of encountering bears, Winslow said.

If a bear exhibits aggressive or strange behavior, people are encouraged to call the department and report it. Bears that appear to be moving through the country should be left alone – no need to report them.

If you visit or live in bear country:

  • Keep garbage in airtight containers inside your garage or storage area. Place garbage outside in the morning just before pickup, not the night before. Occasionally clean cans with ammonia or bleach.
  • Remove bird feeders. Bears see them as sweet treats, and often they will look for other food sources nearby.
  • Never put meat or sweet-smelling food scraps such as melon in your compost pile.
  • Don’t leave pet food or food dishes outdoors at night.
  • Clean and store outdoor grills after use. Bears can smell sweet barbecue sauce and grease for miles.
  • Keep your camp clean, and store food and garbage properly at all times. Use bear-proof containers when available. If not, suspend food, toiletries, coolers and garbage from a tree at least 10 feet off the ground and 4 feet out from the tree trunk.
  • Keep your tent and sleeping bag free of all food smells. Store the clothes you wore while cooking or eating with your food.
  • Sleep a good distance from your cooking area or food storage site.
  • Never intentionally feed bears to attract them for viewing.

If you encounter a bear:

  • Stop, and back away slowly while facing the bear. Avoid direct eye contact, as the bear may consider that a threat. Do not run. Make yourself appear large by holding out your jacket. If you have small children, pick them up so they don’t run.
  • Give the bear plenty of room to escape, so it doesn’t feel threatened or trapped. If a black bear attacks you, fight back using anything at your disposal, such as rocks, sticks, binoculars or even your bare hands. Aim for the bear’s nose and eyes.
  • If the bear has not seen you, stay calm and slowly move away, making noise so the bear knows you are there. Never get between a mother bear and her cubs.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, APRIL 25, 2016:

Public meeting May 5 in Taos
on white-tailed ptarmigan recovery plan

white-tailed ptarmigan

TAOS – The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish invites the public to attend a meeting about development of a state recovery plan for the white-tailed ptarmigan.

The meeting is from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, May 5, 2016, at the Juan I. Gonzales Agricultural Center, 202 Chamisa Road, Taos.

White-tailed ptarmigan is a species of grouse that lives at or above the highest peaks and ridges of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The species is listed as endangered under the New Mexico Wildlife Conservation Act. The act requires the department to produce recovery plans, develop restoration strategies and maintain viable populations of state-listed species and their habitats with the goal of delisting the species.

State recovery plans cannot restrict landowner activities or impose involuntary measures. At the meeting, department staff will present information about the reason for the bird’s listing, explain the recovery plan development process and respond to questions.

For more information, please contact the department’s recovery coordinator, John Bulger, at  (505) 476-8106 or john.bulger@state.nm.us.

Biologists believe perch from Eagle Nest Lake will help Abiquiu Lake fishery

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, APRIL 25, 2016(B-roll available)

Biologists believe perch from Eagle Nest Lake
will help Abiquiu Lake fishery

Stocking perch

SANTA FE – About 20 years ago, yellow perch were illegally placed into Eagle Nest Lake in northeastern New Mexico, where they since have become overpopulated. Now, biologist believe they may serve a purpose elsewhere.

The perch have had impacts to Eagle Nest’s primary species, rainbow trout and kokanee salmon due to competition for resources. However, they are expected to enhance angler opportunities at Abiquiu Lake, where growing populations of walleye and smallmouth bass are eager to eat them.

New Mexico Department of Game and Fish fisheries staff recently spent two days capturing and transporting approximately 7,000 of the perch from Eagle Nest to Abiquiu.

While the perch are viewed as a detriment to the Eagle Nest fishery, biologists believe the translocation to Abiquiu will improve the fishery there by increasing the prey base for walleye and smallmouth bass.

Game and Fish personnel, along with a group of Moreno Valley High School students caught 55 perch at Eagles Nest in early February that were sent to a lab and tested for diseases to make sure the translocation would be safe to the existing fish populations at Abiquiu.

Lady Cardinals Catch Lady Tigers by the Tail

By Marty Mayfield

KRTN Multi-Media

Was it the prom jitters as Raton prepares for their prom on Saturday night or was it that the Lady Cardinals simply put it together for their early morning games Saturday, April 23rd?

The first game of the day started at 9:00 a.m. and the Lady Tigers started the scoring off in the first inning when Montana Trujillo batted a ground ball to bring in Jadyn Walton who had just belted one into deep left field and made it to third. After that, the Lady Tigers would struggle by just missing fly balls deep into the outfield and making a few too many errors allowing the Lady Cardinals to round the bases.

By the end of the seventh inning Robertson had dominated the Lady Tigers with an 11-1 win. The second game however wouldn’t be any better for the Lady Tigers as once again they would struggle with fly balls that seemed to be glove resistant as they fell away to the ground.

The ladies just couldn’t hold on as high fly balls would tip the glove and fall free while Robertson base runners would round the squares. Raton’s Jadyn Walton also struggled at the stripe and was replaced by Natasha Archuleta in the second who also struggled at the pitching stripe. The Lady Cardinals once again put several balls deep into the outfield where Raton made the effort but the balls seemed to again be repelled by the gloves.

This time Raton would go down without scoring as they couldn’t get anyone past second base to home and a 12-0 loss to Robertson.

Raton Rattles Tucumcari Friday in Double Header

By Marty Mayfield

KRTN Multi-Media

The Raton Tigers continue making their mark in the win column in district play as they rattled the Rattlers from Tucumcari Friday afternoon at Gabriele Field by shutting them out in game one and 10 run rule in game two.

Jonathan Cabrieles had a big day on the mound for Raton as he toppled 12 Rattler batters helping the Tigers to a 16-0 win in the first game of the double header. Raton batters had a much better day than they did against Clayton earlier in the week as the fly balls found clear ground to fall into making it easy for base runners to round the squares and make it home. Tucumcari on the other hand was finding it hard to put the ball in the outfield as many of their balls were stopped on the way out with throws to first base for outs.

In game two Tucumcari managed to put two runners across home plate in the second inning but wasn’t able to do any more as Cole Medina also had a good day on the mound striking out seven of the Rattler batters. Tucumcari pitcher Zach Martinez also did his job by throwing out six Raton batters to keep them from running away with the game as they did in game one. However Raton still managed to score in all but the third inning where they went three up three down.

Raton was credited with 16 hits in the first game but could only muster nine hits in the second game while Tucumcari only managed a total of four hits for both games.
