Bear Aware

  • If you encounter a bear, back away slowly (preferably in the direction you came), speaking to the bear in a calm tone. Walk, don't run, and keep your eye on the bear so you can see how it will react.

Cougar Safety Tips

  • Look the cougar in the eyes and make yourself look big, throw rocks or sticks and yell.
  • Pick up children or pets as sudden movements can trigger attacks.
