Bear encounters have doubled so far this year in Yosemite National Park, according to park officials.

ABC News reported:
Yosemite National Park has had a dramatic increase this year in visitors, but it's not humans who've converged en masse: Bear encounters at the national park rose 100 percent in early June compared to the same period in 2016. 
Officials for the 1,1169-square-mile-park, recorded 16 incidents involving bears so far this year -- with half of them occurring in just two weeks, from May 27 to June 9 -- compared to a 38 total for all of last year. 2016 was a record low year for bear encounters though, according to park rangers.
