SHARING THEIR BEAR SPRAY EXPERIENCES
STAY PREPARED TO STAY UNINJURED
Since 2010, there have been six fatal grizzly bear maulings in the Yellowstone region of Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho. Five victims were hikers None of the six victims were carrying bear spray. Of those attacks, three were in Yellowstone National Park, the most recent in August, 2015. There were two fatal attacks in the summer of 2011.
Bear attacks may be rare, but visitors to Yellowstone should always be prepared and carry bear spray. Bears are protective of their space, food, and cubs, and most attacks are in response to surprise encounters with humans. (About 70% of human deaths from grizzly bears are from mothers defending cubs.) If people are unprepared, a bear encounter can result in severe injury or death.
We hope our customers will take the time to learn about bears and how to avoid - and even stop - a bear attack. By learning more about bears, safety techniques, and how and when to use bear spray, you can enjoy exploring Yellowstone with the peace of mind that knowledge and self-protection provide.
Please tour our website for valuable information about bear spray, hiking, and safety information.
HELP SAVE GRIZZLY BEARS AND THEIR HABITAT
Vital Ground is taking critical actions to save grizzly bears. To date, they have helped to protect, enhance and conserve nearly three-quarters of a million acres of crucial wildlife habitat in Western North America. The organization’s dedication to conserving grizzly bear range goes beyond saving a single species. When there is enough “vital ground” a multitude of other animals, plants, and fragile ecosystems benefit as well.
