Bear Hotline Now Operating

Regional | by Bayshore News Staff  

You can now call the Ministry of Natural Resources to fight off bears.

The provincial bear reporting hotline is up and running

The toll-free number -- 1-866-514-2327 -- is part of the Ministry of Natural Resources Bear Wise Program, to educate people on how to avoid attracting bears.

As black bears come out of hibernation, the ministry says people should be taking steps to prevent encounters with them.

Officials say people should be thinking about taking down bird feeders before they receive unwelcome visitors.
