Black bears live in most parts of Ontario. Chances are wherever you live, visit or spend your leisure time, you will be near bears or bear habitat. For your own personal safety, it is important that you learn about bears and their behaviour. Know how to prevent and handle potential encounters with bears.
Black bears are smart, curious, powerful and potentially dangerous. And they don’t like surprises. If you are a hiker, cyclist, jogger, berry picker, or you plan to spend some time in “bear country”, you need to know how bears behave so that you can avoid an encounter.
Knowing what to do if you encounter a bear is being “Bear Wise”. But some encounters may be more dangerous than others, so it’s important to recognize the signs, and know what you can do to protect yourself.
