UMD Advisory Message

Dear Campus Community,

Today we were notified of two bear sightings on our campus, both near the Elkton Hall area. Callers reported the information to the Natural Resources Police Department on June 12, 2016. We want to share with our campus community what you can do if you see a bear.


Safety Tips:

Never feed bears.

Don’t panic and don’t approach it.

Back away slowly.

If you are outside, go to the closest building and go inside.

Most bears fear people and will leave when they see you.

If a bear growls, snaps its jaws, slaps the ground or brush, or bluff charges: you are too close.


Once you are in a safe location, call police right away. To find out more information on how to be prepare in the event of a bear sighting, visit http://dnr2.maryland.gov/wildlife/Pages/hunt_trap/bblivingwith.aspx
