Black bear response guide

Description

This guide provides a standard approach in deciding black bear management responses. It is a resource for government staff who must act in situations of conflict where clear, concise and consistent direction is needed. The guide supports the province’s Black Bear Management Plan (2016) and is the result of collaboration among biologists, enforcement officers, and problem wildlife specialists. Except in national parks, this guide will apply to specific events involving black bears throughout the province, including lands within provincial parks and protected areas. The guide is reviewed annually and revised as required.
