Bear Intervention - Banff National Park

Bear #401 was a beautiful black bear who lived in the lands surrounding the Banff townsite in Banff National Park. Park visitors loved seeing bear #401 and he enjoyed his life in the wild. One day, his mother found an easy food source – food was left lying around by some absent campers. She and bear #401 quickly became addicted to human food. Now, significant effort is needed on the part of all park visitors to ensure that bear #401 and others aren’t encouraged to come back for more. Resource Conservation Specialists must also increase their efforts in attempting to haze the bear away from high visitor use areas.
