Bear Safety in Sturgeon Point

It’s that time of year again, and we would like to remind all area residents about the importance of bear safety in our community.

There have been several incidents in the past few weeks where bears have been very active, tipping garbage cans, rummaging looking for any source of food.

Please help by ensuring that all garbage is secure, and putting your garbage out until the morning is also a good practice. 

The Ministry of Natural Resources has released the provincial bear reporting hot-line number. Its toll-free and a part of the Bear Wise program, which educates people on how to avoid attracting bears. The number to remember is 1-866-514-2327.
