You are encouraged to call 9-1-1 if you see a bear posing an immediate threat to personal safety by showing threatening or aggressive behaviour, entering a school yard when school is in session, stalking people and lingering in an area, entering or trying to enter a home, wandering into public area's or killing livestock or pets and staying in the area.
