The Bear finds a new home in Cheyenne

(Cheyenne, Wyo.) - The City of Cheyenne and the homeowner at the corner of Warren Avenue and Third Avenue have reached an agreement to relocate a bear carved out of a tree trunk that is in the public right-of-way. The bear will be removed starting at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Mar. 16, and will then be relocated to its new home at the Indian Village in Frontier Park. \ “I’m very pleased to share that a most viable resolution has been reached regarding the iconic bear, and to share that a partnership was created to provide the bear a new home. Mrs. Bravo-Garris and I have been working together, and as she has shared with me, is very, very happy,” said Mayor Rick Kaysen. Kaysen also shared “in addition to working with Mrs. Bravo-Garris, our partners include Cheyenne Frontier Days, and Evergreen Lawn & Tree Service. I’m most grateful that Bill Berg, CFD General Chairman, and Tom Hirsig, Cheyenne Frontier Days Chief Executive Officer, are providing the Indian Village as the bear’s new home. In addition, I am also very grateful to Mitch Reisdorfer, owner of Evergreen Lawn & Tree Service, in volunteering to relocate the bear and remove all stumps at no cost.” The right-hand northbound lane on Warren Avenue near Third Avenue will be closed while crews work on removing the bear. *H/t photo: Ballet Wyoming/Pitchengine Communities* #shortgo #news
