Appropriate Conduct Around Wildlife


From the pages of Camping Life

Every year, visitors to the backcountry are injured by wild animals that are, for one reason or another, put in a situation that leads to dangerously close contac with humans. Most of the time, it isn’t the animal that chooses to have such close contact.

There are some basic rules we can follow to help make our experiences with wild animals less stressful for them and less dangerous for us. The first rule is to check your warm/fuzzy feelings at the door, because these aren’t Disney characters. They’re wild animals that deserve the space to live without feeling menaced by humans.

Baby Animals

From time to time, young animals, such as fawns, will be left alone temporarily by their mothers. Do not intervene, because it will only cause problems. If you approach closely or handle a young animal, a lingering human scent may lead to total abandonment by the mother.

• If the mother catches you messing with her young, she may perceive you as a threat and attack you.
• Never, ever get between a mother and her baby.

Small Animals

Don’t feed them, even if they come into camp looking hungry. It’s a strong temptation to feed seemingly friendly wildlife, but that accomplishes two negative ends. It makes them dependent upon human food, and it encourages them to hang around a human camp, both of which can be dangerous for them.

• Don’t try to touch. A startled animal may scratch or bite you, which can transmit dangerous diseases.

Big Animals

The No. 1 rule for all wildlife is to keep your distance.

• The best thing you can do if you want close-up photos is to buy a telephoto (200 mm to 400 mm)
lens, so you don’t have to crowd the animal.
• Do not shout, wave or throw objects to get the animal to “look” at the camera.

Bears

Food and surprise encounters are the two biggest problems between humans and bears when in bear country. Black bears are opportunistic foragers, always looking for a free meal, so it is important to keep a clean camp. The grizzly bear is a powerful predator, capable of outrunning a horse. Keep in mind that when you are in grizzly country, you are now just part of the food chain. Mother bears are very protective of their cubs, and will not hesitate to charge intruders.

• Don’t leave food in your vehicle. Bears can and will break into vehicles if they see or smell food.
• In the backcountry, hang food high in a tree. Sleep at least 100 feet from where you hang the food,
cook and eat. Toiletries such as toothpaste, soap and shampoo may also attract bears, so store them
as you would food.
• Don’t sleep in the same clothes you wore while cooking and eating. Hang that clothing in plastic bags
away from camp.
• At campsites without bear-proof garbage cans, treat garbage and leftovers the same as food. When
leaving camp, pack out all food scraps. Place food and garbage in tightly sealed plastic bags. Double-
bag everything to prevent the ...
