FOR 2001 SEASON ONLY
DO NOT CAMP IN
DO NOT CAMP ON DIAMOND LAKE
Previous bear advisory (July 28) has been upgraded to a warning.
The bear(s) on Diamond Lake has become aggressive. You will probably be visited, day or night, if you camp on Diamond.
With an attack on September 8 (no one injured), we recommend you DO NOT CAMP within the yellow area shown on map.
Islands are not bearproof as bears are excellent swimmers so don't think an island campsite will help you avoid a visit in this area
Situation in Rest of Temagami
The above mentioned attack is a rare instance of a bear turning aggressive. No other areas of Temagami have had reports of aggressive bears.
There are still normal precautions you should consider taking, whenever traveling in the wild, listed under the July 28 bear advisory.
