Bears & Wildlife ~ Around Nakusp & area, bears and other wildlife may be encountered
Most bears are simply travelling through the area and make every effort to avoid humans. Seeing a bear in our area is a memorable experience, but please respect and help protect our bears.
HELP PROTECT OUR BEARS
Their keen sense of smell can draw them to unattended food or improperly stored garbage. Please make every effort to store food and garbage in bear proof containers. There is little or no chance of correcting a food conditioned bear, and authorities are forced to destroy the bear when they become aggressive to towards humans.
GENERAL BEAR SAFETY TIPS
Respect all bears. All bears can be dangerous. Never feed a bear. Whether intentionally or unintentionally, by not using bear proof containers or disposing of garbage properly. Feeding a bear creates a food conditioned bear. Be defensive - never surprise a bear. Make your presence known by talking loudly, clapping, singing or occasionally calling out. This is a benefit of hiking in a group.
Be alert. Look for signs of recent bear activity. These include droppings, tracks, evidence of digging, and claw or bite marks on trees.
Stay far away from bears. Never approach a bear. There is no guaranteed minimum safe distance from a bear - the further, the better.
Stay away from dead animals. Bears may attack to defend such food.
Hiking with pets is not recommended. It is best not to hike with dogs, as dogs can antagonize bears and cause an attack. An unleashed dog may bring a bear back to you.
Encountering bears. If spotted in the distance, do not approach the bear. Make a wide detour or leave the area immediately. If you are at close range, do not approach the bear. Remain calm, keep it in view. Avoid direct eye contact. Move away without running. In both instances report the bear sighting to other's you might cross paths with and resort staff.
What to do if a bear approaches? If the bear is standing up, it is usually trying to identify you. Talk softly so it knows what you are. If it is snapping its jaws, lowering its head, flattening its ears, growling or making 'woofing' signs, it is displaying aggression. Do not run unless you are very close to a secure place. Move away, keeping it in view. Avoid direct eye contact. Dropping your pack or an object may distract it to give you more time.
