Vince Shute Wildlife Sanctuary

Wildlife Sanctuary

We are a wildlife sanctuary that is visited primarily by wild black bears. We have over 700 acres in which wildlife is protected on.


The Vince Shute Wildlife Sanctuary operated by the American Bear Association in Orr, Minnesota is often described as the best place to see wild black bears in their natural habitat, and for good reason. From our expanded viewing deck visitors can learn about black bears by observing their natural behavior.
