1903 July 2, The Free Press, Redding, Cal. - The deep snow on the Salmon River or Caribou Mountains in Trinity County is causing bear, deer, and other large game to frequent the lower altitudes, to the great discomfort of miners and others living in the neighborhood of that mountain range.

Tuesday evening at the supper hour a mammoth panther strolled leisurely into the boarding house at the Strode Mine and struck terror to the hearts of the inmates. There was a general stampede and the animal had sole possession for a time. Finally a couple of dogs caught scent of the panther and made an attack upon him. There was an interesting fight for a few minutes, when the panther turned tail and escaped into the woods.

The same day while George L. Carr's folks were going over Trinity Mountain they encountered two large cinnamon bears in the road on the divide. At first the bears seemed inclined to maintain their possession of the right of way and make the Carrs go 'round. They thought better of the matter, however, and scampered off into the woods. There is plenty of deer in the foothills and mountains and small game in abundance.~

1909 August 18, Oregonian - Thomas McDonald, a well-known mining man and capitalist, has won the distinction of ridding Trinity County of the terror of the ranges, by killing what is undoubtedly the biggest grizzly ever seen in the northern part of the state. The monster beast, weighing close to 1000 pounds, has for years been striking terror to the hearts of the residents of Salmon River range, killing sheep, and making other depredations.

McDonald, who is an expert rifle shot, undertook to rid the county of the nuisance and has accomplished his task. After a short though fierce struggle, the bear was killed and McDonald now has trophies of the chase in the way of the biggest bearskin ever seen in this region, and has been voted a resolution of thanks by the residents of the section the bear had terrorized.~
