Living with black bears
Only one species of bear inhabits the forested regions of Quebec – the black bear.
The black bear is intelligent, curious and discreet.
Bear behaviour is much more predictable than you might think.
No bear is a “problem bear” at birth. Except in some very rare cases, as the result of the inappropriate behaviour of humans, some bears develop behaviours that are problematic for both them and us.
