Bears frequenting area

To minimize the potential of a bear encounter:

  • Watch for bears and avoid them.
  • Make noise to alert bears of your presence.
  • Supervise children playing outdoors.
  • Remove bear attractants (bird feeders and fruit on trees) from your yard.

Keep pet food, garbage, and recycling secure.

All domestic animals must be kept under physical control at all times (leash or suitable confinement).

Staff managing bears require you to leave the area, as your presence may influence a bear’s direction of travel.

Please report all bear sightings to Jasper Dispatch (780-852-6155) or jasperdispatch-repartitionjasper@pc.gc.ca.
