In the meantime, in Canada…?
Everybody occasionally requires a little luxury. Even wild creatures. One black bear believed he had hit the jackpot when he discovered a soft mattress in a trash near Kingfisher Lake, Ontario.
Northern Ontario regularly sees black bears.
A black bear finds a garbage dump as the perfect place to relax. But rather than out searching for food, this black bear seems to value his leisure time.
While visiting the landfill, 500 kilometers north of the First Nation community Thunder Bay, Keira Mamakwa wasn’t expected to see a black bear at about 5 o’clock on a July evening.
She confessed in a Facebook post that she was taken aback to see him curled up on the mattress, “just vibein’.”
Only a few feet distanced her from the bear, but she had to take some pictures since she found it so hilarious.
Around here, she said, “Bears are extremely hilarious.”
A little over 6,000 people shared her post.
The attention wasn’t something the bear appeared to like. At one point, he raised his head to her as if he despised her for interfering with his period of comfort.
According to a commenter on a Facebook post, “He’s like Damn is this memory foam?”
Another person said, “Wouldn’t she like that in her cave during hibernation!”
“One man’s junk is another man’s treasure,” and similar expressions.
The black bear is the most prevalent and extensively dispersed bear species in North America.
They can be found in wooded areas, beaches, and alpine regions.
Depending on where they live, black bears can vary greatly in their dietary preferences, dining customs, and life cycles. Their actions can also change.
In Ontario, black bears are somewhat prevalent.
“Not every bear sighting necessitates immediate action. This is who to call if you see a bear, according to the information on the website ontario.ca.
In Ontario, you should only dial 911 in the event of a life-threatening emergency or if the bear is acting aggressively or threateningly toward you.
- Entering a school’s grounds when classes are in session
- When it follows people or stays at a location
- Enters your home or attempts to do so
- wanders into a crowded area
- kills animals and pets while remaining on the scene
Locals are asked to call the Bear Wise line at 1-866-514-2327 or 705-945-7641 for TTY help if they see a bear.
- wanders around or checks the trash cans
- trespasses into a shed housing food or waste
- in a tree.
- throws a barbeque over or takes down a bird feeder
- goes swiftly through a field or backyard without stopping.
The best course of action is to slowly retreat while keeping the bear in view and waiting for it to disappear.
A whistle, waving your arms, and throwing objects are other options. If the bear doesn’t move immediately, you might have to yell or use an air horn.
Additionally, you should seek refuge in your house, vehicle, or other building as soon as possible. Drop any food you may be carrying, then slowly back off.
Bears should be left alone if they are in trees. When it feels safe, it will only descend. If you come across a mother bear with her cubs, you should ONLY pretend to be dead.
Bear spray is also brilliant if you’re in an area where bears are common. Defend yourself fiercely if you are attacked.
