3 TIPS FOR BEING BEAR AWARE IN THE ROCKIES

 

If you’re hiking in the Rockies you’re on the home turf of the resident grizzly and black bears. Parks Canada recommends taking the following steps to minimize the chance of an encounter:


BE NOISY

Clap, sing and talk loudly. Don’t rely on bear bells alone to make your presence known.


TEAM UP

Hike in a group of four or more and don’t let kids wander off.


LEASH THE DOG

Or better yet, leave the pooch at home. Dogs provoke defensive behaviour in bears.


TRY NOT TO RUN!
