TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif. - Lassen Volcanic National Park announced Thursday that it has temporarily closed Manzanita Creek Trail due to bear activity.

The bear has been frequenting a deer carcass along the trail and the area has been deemed unsafe for hikers. 

Authorities said Lassen is home to about 30 black bears. These adaptable animals live in the park year-round, however they enter torpor–a short-term form of hibernation–in the snowy winter months.
