Soo Police Serice Bear Safety

Soo Police Serice Bear Safety

SAULT STE MARIE, ONTARIO  ~~~~~  June 24, 2022 (LSNews)  Police have received several reports of a bear and cubs in the area of Alworth Place. The bears have been seen near homes and sheds in this area.

he Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry has been notified via the Bear Wise reporting line. Callers did not report that the bears were aggressive or acting in a threatening manner.

If you encounter a bear, stop. Do not panic. Remain calm. Generally, the noisier the bear is, the less dangerous it is, provided you do not approach. The noise is meant to “scare” you off and acts as a warning signal. Slowly back away, keeping the bear in sight and wait for it to leave.

In emergency situations, such as a bear entering a school yard when school is in session, a bear is stalking or lingering somewhere or attacks or injures pets, call 9-1-1.

In non-emergency situations, such as a bear roaming through an area or checking garbage cans, breaking into a shed where garbage or food is stored or pulling down a bird feeder, use the provincial toll free Bear Wise reporting line, 1-866-514-2327 or TTY 705-945-7641. This line operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, from April 1 to November 30.
