Bear Problems? Here’s what you need to know…

Now that we’re in the summer season, here’s what you need to know when it comes to dealing with problem black bear in town.

The Township asks you keep these three things in mind the next time you see a black bear in the Township:

  1. If you have a complaint regarding threats to life or property coming from problem black bears in the Township, please direct all complaints to 911 or the OPP. Make the call to 911 or the OPP when a black bear poses an immediate threat to your personal safety, or:
    • enters a school yard (when school is in session)
    • enters or tries to enter a residence
    • wanders into a public gathering
    • kills livestock/pets and lingers at the site
    • stalks people and lingers at the site
  2. If you see a bear within the Township, but it is not posing a threat to human life or property, please report those sightings to the MNRF, between April 1 to November 30. Make the call to the MNRF for black bear non-emergencies, such as:
    • roaming, checking garbage cans
    • knocking over barbecues
    • moving through a backyard or field, but not lingering
  3. Bylaw complaints associated with black bear attractants (such as summer bird feeders, improper garbage storage, etc.) shall be made to the Township, as per policy C-3-29.

If it is a black bear emergency, call 9-1-1.

If it is a black bear non-emergency/sighting, call MNRF (1-866-514-2327).
