Three Rivers is literally crawling with hungry bears driven down from the mountains by drought in search of food to fatten up for winter...The four-year drought shriveled the berry crop in the Sierra Nevada and oaks on parched hillsides produced fewer acorns, forcing the bears into the valleys carved by the branches of the Kaweah River that give this town its name.
