Bear Sighting


Bear Update - August 27th

As of yesterday, Monday August 26th there were no new reports to the Bear Reporting Line and at the moment MNR is not quite sure where the bear is.  This though has been typical of his pattern, he is sighted for a few days and then nothing for a few days.

Katie Paroschy of MNR today advised that MNR had set a bear trap on Fisherman's Trail last Tuesday until Friday.  Thursday the bear was sighted back on the other side of the lake (possibly that's when one of our members on 2799 Boice Bradley had the visitor on his property).  It is quite possible that the bear is swimming across as it is only about 400m.  

  • For any sightings of a bear call the Bear Reporting Line 1-866-514-2327 (this line is open 24 hrs).
  • In an emergency call Minden OPP immediately 705-286-1431
  • Call 9-1-1 if a bear is breaking in or chasing someone.

Bear Update - August 23rd

The MNR advises that this bear has now successfully broken into a home on the East side of Redstone Lake in order to get food. The MNR recently set a bear trap somewhere on the East side of Redstone, but has not yet captured the bear.  Since there were multiple sightings of the bear on the West side of the lake yesterday, the MNR will re-evaluate the situation on Monday to determine next steps. In the meantime, the MNR is advising all Redstone Lake residents to keep their ground floor windows closed until this bear situation is resolved.


Bear Alert - August 22nd

There have been numerous incidents with a nuisance bear over the past three weeks in the Blue Heron Road and Rattlesnake Road areas.  The most recent incidents occurred this morning (August 22nd). On at least two occasions, the bear has tried to gain access to residences and has caused significant damage.  Numerous reports have been filed with the MNR.  The OPP has now been advised and has assigned resources to try and find the bear.  If you see any bear on your property, please call the MNR Bear Reporting Line at 1-866-514-2327.  This line operates 24/7.  If you feel your safety is threatened, you should call the Minden OPP immediately 705-286-1431
