What to Do if You See a Black Bear at Your Beach Resort
The black bear is known for its aggressive behavior and is a favorite among those seeking a day on the water.
So, if you see a black bear in the water, the best course of action is to quickly get to a safe distance from it.
“You have to be able to get away, so you have to get off the beach,” says Mark Saylor, a wildlife conservationist who is part of a National Geographic team that has studied black bears in Florida.
“There is no point trying to run away, but if you are really close, you can try to grab onto something that is a branch or a rock or anything like that and try to get out of the way of the bear.”
If you can, you should also try to make it out of your vehicle as quickly as possible.
The black bears are known to be territorial and will be aggressive toward others, so if you have the option, get out as quickly and as safely as possible, Saylor says.
You may also want to avoid swimming in pools, but that’s a topic for another day.
As for your trip, you might want to consider a shorter, more direct route.
“The more distance that you travel, the less likely it is that you’ll see one in the ocean,” Saylor advises.
“If you’re going to go to the beach, be aware that it is going to be dangerous to stay out there for any length of time.”
The Black Bear’s Revenge The black bulldog is one of the rarest animals in the world, and in the wild, they are rarer than some of the animals listed in the U.S. Endangered species are only found in a few areas of the world.
The U.K., which has a population of some 1,200, has the highest population of any country in the European Union, and the U,S., which includes parts of the U and southern states, have about 700, according to the UBC Wildlife Trust.
But that doesn’t mean that the black bear hasn’t been spotted around the world in other places.
In South Africa, for example, the black bears were spotted on a road in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa in 2015.
A year later, the same area was covered with a white bear.
“They were definitely there, but they were very small,” said Scott Johnson, who is a wildlife biologist with the South African Wildlife Service.
“It’s a shame because it would be really nice to see them in South Africa.”
If it’s still a danger to you, you’ll want to be prepared.
“In most places in the Western Hemisphere, the wild black bear has not been seen in the last 40 years,” Sayers says.
“Black bears can be very aggressive and dangerous to people and animals in a very confined space.”
The UBC has a number of ways you can prepare for black bear encounters, including keeping a “biohazard” bag in your vehicle or a “black bear trap” with a trap and a harness.
“We have the biohazard bag and we have the black trap,” Johnson says.
If you don’t have the bag, you could try to secure a small object, such as a tennis ball, into a nylon bag.
“That would make a good biohazard,” Johnson adds.
If a black animal appears in your backyard, you may want to take the black animal along with you.
In some places, a black dog can be relocated to a larger animal sanctuary.
The Black Cat The black cat is an endangered species and is known to live in the African savanna.
It is the largest and longest-lived cat in the country.
The cats are primarily found in sub-Saharan Africa and can live for up to 50 years, Sayers explains.
The animals can be seen as a threat to people’s health, as well as their habitat.
Sayers also warns that it’s important to have a plan in place.
“People need to be on top of their game,” he says.
The best way to protect yourself is to keep yourself in close contact with the animals.
Saylor recommends keeping an eye on your pets, particularly if you live in a remote area or if you work in a low-population area.
“Your cats are in danger,” he advises.
If an animal is spotted, contact wildlife authorities immediately.
“Stay in your car, keep moving away from it, and get out there as soon as you can,” Says.
You might also want the option of a black cat tour.
“I can’t imagine a day in the life of a hunter without being exposed to black cats,” Johnson said.
“So if you do that, you really need to do it in the right way.”
