Jacqueline Mittelstadt, attorney to councilwoman JoAnn Conner, says that she is still “going back and forth” with the City of South Lake Tahoe’s attorney as they work to reach a finalized settlement in her client’s lawsuits against the city.

by Placerville Newswire / Aug 14, 2016 / comments

Nevada wildlife officers have killed a female bear that had been blamed for home break-ins in the South Lake Tahoe area.

Nevada Department of Wildlife spokesman Chris Healy said Monday the 2-year-old female was shot dead July 28 following a confrontation with a homeowner near Stateline.

Healy says the bear had been captured and fitted with a tracking collar in early May after she was found trying to raid trash bins.

The collar showed she kept returning to residential areas.
