Bears at the Point

Bears

There have been various reports of bears around the Point.

There is apparently a mother bear and two cubs. One of the cubs may be on it’s own now

As bears travel in search of natural food, they can be drawn to human-caused, unnatural food sources. These sources include:

  • Garbage
  • Bird food (seed, suet and nectar)
  • Food put outside for pets or wildlife
  • Compost, grease and food residue on barbecue grills
  • Food smell (baking or cooking with open windows or doors)
  • Agriculture crops such as corn and soya

For non-emergency encounters call the Bear Wise reporting line1-866-514-2327 (April 1st to November 30)

Call the Bear Wise reporting line if a bear is:

  • Returning often to your property
  • Roaming around, checking garbage cans
  • Breaking into a vehicle, shed, garage or unoccupied building
  • In a tree in an urban area
  • Pulling down a bird feeder or knocking over a barbecue
  • Injured or dead

For emergency encounters: Call 911 or local police if a bear poses an immediate threat to personal safety.
