Bear Safety Reminder<div class="ExternalClass660B2AAAEC5B4790919168669D1D91B6"><p>​Bears are now active and their movements are often dictated by food supplies. Bears are not picky eaters and will rarely pass up a meal even if it means going near humans to get it. Bears that become comfortable near people can be more dangerous to humans or may be destroyed. </p><p>To keep bears wild and visitors safe:<br> •Never feed a bear; do not leave any garbage or unattended food<br> •Clean up garbage and food immediately; use bear-proof bins provided<br> •Never approach a bear<br> •Change your route or plans to avoid bears</p><p>If you <em>see </em>a bear, stay back 100 metres. If you <em>encounter </em>a bear, stay calm and slowly back away.</p><p>Negative bear-human interactions may result in closure of some areas of the park or harm to the bear.</p></div>True
