What do I do if I see a bear?Posted by Chris Allen | 0 Comments
- Please be aware of bears in the area. We have them around all of our properties big and small. You may see bear tracks on the driveways if you look. They have walked up to within just a few feet of us while we were outside playing with the children. They are great to watch from a safe distance, but can be dangerous, and are not afraid to meet you! Bears in this area also will come out in the winter months. They do not hibernate completely. They come out for food all winter long. Do not leave trash or food outside. Do not leave food in your car. A bear may try to break in to get it. Lock car doors. Bears can open car doors!
- DO NOT FEED THE BEARS OR LEAVE FOOD OUT FOR THEM!! This will cause them to associate people with food, can cause attacks on humans, and cause the bear have to be euthanized by authorities, plus it is ILLEGAL. Please watch your children, and teach them what to do if they see a bear. Bear attacks are very rare and you rarely hear of one, but a reckless move around a mother and her cubs or an aggressive male could end with severe consequences.
