Bear With Us Mission:To promote the understanding and respect for the bear family, a species near the top of the evolutionary scale, a species in direct niche competition with the human race.
Fulfilling the mission: The Bear With Us Sanctuary and Rehabilitation Centre for Bears concentrates on four primary areas of operation in order to fulfill the mission. We invite you to learn more about our 4 focus areas.
“For twenty five years (2017) I have worked with adult wild black bears that are victims of human activity. This includes hunting, automobile and other injuries. We assist orphan cubs until old enough to be returned to the wild. We work with people recreating in bear country and home owners regarding perceived nuisance bears. This work has allowed myself the privilege to observe the many varied reactions to human interference exhibited by the bears. What I find incredible is a bear’s ability for exhibiting restraint.” …Mike McIntosh
Each year Bear With Us is required to renew Ministry of Natural Resources Authorizations. a) Keep captive, rehabilitate and return black bears to the wild. b) Keep black bears permanently in captivity. c) Act as an agent when working to resolve human/bear conflicts such as live trapping and relocating a bear. We sincerely hope you find this website informative and a good resource.
