Safety: Black Bears
Posted on Saturday, July 30 @ 11:44:32 MST by iljiana

Horse Tips and Suggestions Black bears are not typically aggressive and rarely pose
any threat to humans. An encounter with a black bear
usually results in the bear running away to avoid human
contact. The public is encouraged, however, to use
caution concerning black bears

  • Don’t feed the bears. Once bears learn to associate food with humans, they can become quite aggressive for another easy meal. A fed bear becomes a “problem bear,” which either has to be moved to a remote location or destroyed.
  • While camping in remote locations, bag your food and hang it from a tall tree branch, some distance away from the tree’s trunk. Bears can climb trees, but they may not want to “go out on a limb.”
  • Dispose of litter and food trash properly. Trash containers with lids are provided at developed campsites and other recreation areas on the forest for proper trash disposal.
  • Never approach a black bear. Bears are wild animals and must be respected.
  • If you walk upon a bear, back up slowly. Maintain eye contact, and do not run!  Remain in a standing position and make loud, sharp noises.
  • A mother bear with a cub, or cubs, can be especially dangerous. She will defend and protect her young.
