Arctic Directory: Lounsbury offers bear guard, hazing services

Lounsbury & Assoc. said July 29 that it has expanded its offerings to include professional bear guard and hazing services. Lounsbury has an experienced team of individuals with specialized training in U.S. Fish & Wildlife certified bear guard and hazing techniques. Team leader A.J. Rookus is also certified by the federal agency to provide individual training for bear hazing. In additional, all members of the team have extensive training for wildlife behavior, habitat, hazing techniques, firearms, safety and more. “Team members have had extensive formal and informal training regarding what to do when encountering the predators of the north — brown bears and polar bears,” said Rookus. “Brown bears are generally a lot easier to deal with than polar bears. Polar bears are the top of the food chain so we treat them with an extra-special respect and wariness.” As a part of his U.S. Fish & Wildlife training, Rookus also learned to depart the area after use of bear spray because it is likely to draw curious bears to the area investigating the new smell.
