According to Get Bear Smart Society, there are 50 black bears in the municipality of Whistler, as well as 10,000 residents and 10 million annual visitors.
While they may appear ‘cute and cuddly’, the society recommends that people keep their distance from the carnivorous mammals at all times.
Sylvia Dolson, executive director of Get Bear Smart Society wrote online: ‘The single best piece of advice is stay at least 100 metres away from all bears.
‘Do not approach them, not even for a photo. And never, ever, EVER feed a bear.
‘Feeding bears changes their relationship with people – once they see people as a source of food the road to conflict is short and bears are killed to protect human safety.
‘Keep bears alive by keeping them at a distance.’
