A bear was seen at Nipissing University this morning. People are asked to be cautious if they are travelling around campus today.
If you have a close encounter with a bear, the province suggests yelling, throwing objects, and using a horn or bear spray to try and get it to leave. They also suggest travelling in groups of two while in bear country, and scanning your surroundings.
If you come across a bear, and it is not an emergency, you can call the Bear Wise Reporting Line at: 1-866-514-2327
