Proper Food Storage Required

Allowing a bear to obtain human food, even once, often results in aggressive bear behavior. Aggressive bears are a threat to human safety and must be relocated or killed. Do not feed bears or other wildlife for any reason. Failure to follow park food storage regulations is a violation of federal law. Help keep bears wild and humans safe.
