Summer Wildlife Safety

Summer in Marquette means increaced wildlife activity, and not just the small animals we’re used to seeing. It also means large animals like bears are more likely to wander into the city in search of food.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has information about how to prevent wild animals from wandering into your back yard for a snack.

make sure you never approach a wild animal if you soon one on your property, keep a safe distance and call local DNR for assistance. (906) 228-6561
