Please Don't feed the Bears

Feeding Wildlife:
A potentially disappointing situation is developing where a bear and cubs may have to be removed
and possibly destroyed because of the danger resulting from a Property Owner feeding
them. The animals become emboldened and then pose a threat to property and people. So far,
there has been property damage but no injuries. Once again, please don’t feed the wildlife. It’s
a Big Canoe rule and State law specifically prohibits feeding bears with enforcement provided
through the DNR. DNR assistance has been requested by Big Canoe. The Mama Bear and her 2 cubs have broken into garages in search of dog food and trash. Please do not leave food items in outdoor areas or garages.
