Why You Need Bear Awareness Training
Bear populations are rebounding because of various conservation efforts. As a result, bear territories are expanding, and the chances of encountering a bear in the wild are increasing. The chances of a bear killing you are low. However, the chances of the bear being euthanized after too many human encounters are much higher. As most bear attacks are preventable, it is important to know what steps you should take to avoid an encounter, as well as what you should do to increase the likeliness of both you and the bear surviving.
Check out this list of fatal bear attacks in North America.
