They are so cute I can BEARly contain my joy and I sure wish they were as cuddly as they look. But, if you do happen to run into a bear in the wild, help keep yourself and the animal safe by…

  • Maintaining a safe distance: Stay at least 100 meters (330 feet) away from the bear.
  • Staying calm and making noise: Speak calmly, clap your hands, or use bear bells to alert the bear of your presence.
  • Not approaching or feeding them: Bears are wild animals, and it’s crucial to respect their space and natural behavior.
