Stay Bear Wise This Spring
Spring is here and that means Bears are coming out of their hibernation. During the spring the possibility of coming across a bear within our communities is much higher because there are less natural food sources for them in the wild.
Here are a few things you can do to help reduce the chance of attracting bears:
• Ensure garbage is stored in waste containers with tight-fitting lids.
• Put out garbage, recycling and green carts only on the morning of your waste pickup day.
• Put away winter bird feeders, seed and suet.
• Clean outdoor barbeque grills after each use, including the grease trap.
If you see a bear wandering you can report a sighting by visiting the City’s Report-a-Bear map at www.greatersudbury.ca/bears and by emailing email@example.com. If a bear is posing an immediate threat to personal or public safety, call 911.
