Did you know that the Great Smoky Mountain National Park is one of the largest protected areas in the eastern united states were black bears can live in the wild.
 
While seeing a bear is a wonderful experience please follow these precautions to protect your family as well as the bears.
 
Never approach bears.
Do not feed or place food to attract bears.
Do not leave grills or picnic tables unattended.
Only place trash in animal resistant cans or dumpsters.
Do not leave food in your car or in coolers outside the cabin
 
If you see a bear
Slowly back away from the bear
Bring children and pets indoors
Make sure the bear is aware of your presence by yelling and making noises to frighten the bear and encourage it to leave
