Bears – its that time of year again

Every spring and summer our community is visited by one or two members of the local black bear community. Black bears are rarely aggressive but their presence can pose a real danger to both humans and ultimately to the bears themselves. To reduce the risk of attracting bears into our village, please keep your garbage in bear resistant containers and put it out the morning of garbage day, not the night before. More tips and information can be found on the excellent Bear Wise web site set up by the MNR.

If you do experience a bear emergency, call 911. To report bear problems contact the Bear Reporting Line at: 1-866-514-BEAR (2327).
