It looks like film crews will be back to shoot more footage of the bears of Mammoth Lakes, for a short Bear Whisperer TV series.
The Bear Whisperer was a popular two hour special that originally aired on Animal Planet in January. Since that time, there had been talk that the show might become a series focused on Mammoth Lakes.
Last week internet sources reported that Animal Planet had ordered a short three episode Bear Whisperer series. When we spoke to Mammoth Bear Man Steve Searles, he confirmed that film crews were set to return to Mammoth.
Searles didnt know the details about when the new episodes might be aired on Animal Planet, but he did say that he had been shooting some footage for LMNO, the production company that made the original Bear Whisperer. The film crews may return to Mammoth within the next few weeks.
