The Northern

Black Bear

Black bears are remarkable animals that contribute much to the allure Michigan and Wisconsin have for outdoor enthusiasts of all types.

The northern black bears will usually not bother you, unless you come upon a mother bear with cubs. A bear cub looks cute, but do not stay around to admire it.

The Michigan and Wisconsin black bears are one of our many invaluable wild species. Whether you are camping, hiking, biking, fishing, canoeing or driving down the road, you will enjoy seeing the black bears.

The items on this page will give you more information, safety tips, directions for food storage, and tell you how to peacefully share the woods and forests with the Northern Black Bear.
