Already wide awake from their long hibernation, the black bears are quietly returning to their ease in the forest. If hikers adorn themselves with bells until they resemble a Christmas tree to avoid being surprised by a black bear on their path, others enjoy observing them from afar. Playful, imposing, gluttonous; they often offer a beautiful spectacle.


The black bear, a large beast with multiple assets: some admire them, some hunt them, others trap them. This is the case of Lyne Bélanger, an avid trapper who has refined her techniques over the years. She gives you her best tips in this video clip, in which you can visit her facilities and learn more about the trap.
