The unwelcomed visitors

Under no circumstances should you attempt

to photograph or approach a bear in any way.

One of our visiting bears


Bear visitation

Over the last few years, members of the University community have observed individual bears roaming on our campus on several occasions.

Bear visitation


Why here

  • Our proximity to the High Mountain reservation combined with the smell of food from buildings and dumpsters has probably attracted the bear to our grounds.

Why here


To discourage visitation

To decrease the likelihood of a bear

being attracted to our campus,

everyone

should properly dispose of garbage

and should

never leave food out for animals or birds.

To discourage visitation


Bears and their cubs are not dogs

Bears are dangerous wild animals and female bears are extremely dangerous when they believe their cubs are at risk of being injured.

Bears and their cubs are not dogs.

  • Do not approach the bear.

  • Make the bear aware of your presence by making noise.

What to do if in a vehicle

If you are inside a vehicle and observe a bear, please remain in the vehicle,

sound your horn, and

contact Campus Police if possible.

Keep in mind that the noise from your horn may scare the bear away but it also alerts other people to the presence of the bear.
