People are still learning how to peacefully coexist with bears. Too often, humans unknowingly attract bears by not properly disposing of garbage or securing outdoor food, causing conflicts in which bears are shot. Trophy hunters portray bears (especially grizzly bears) as dangerous animals and push to kill them to reduce their numbers.
Grizzly bears and black bears are omnivores. Fruit, nuts, insects and fish make up a large part of their diet. Unsecured refuse, bird seed or pet food attract them to human yards and homes—and trouble.
When bears rise up on their hind legs in a human-like posture, they are trying to see, hear or smell better.
For every animal saved, countless others are still suffering. By stepping up for them, you can create a future where animals no longer have to suffer in puppy mills, factory farms, testing labs or other heartbreaking situations. Start saving lives today!
