Do This If a Bear Approaches Your Car in YNP
Do you know what to do when a bear approaches your vehicle? If you're traveling through Yellowstone National Park it could happen, like it did last Saturday when a black bear put its paws on some vehicles in the Tower-Roosevelt area.
May is a busy season for bears in the park, so if a bear does approach or touch your vehicle you should honk your horn and drive away. This will discourage the bear.
A park release states "bears that grow accustomed to people and view humans as a food source can become aggressive and have to be killed."
