Sow and 3 cubs (white, brown and cinnamon colored) seen by the RCMP station in Elkford

A sow with 3 cubs (white, black and cinnamon colored) have been seen by the RCMP station in Elkford the morning of September 19th. 

Let’s work together to ensure this family of bears stay wild and the community remains safe.  All garbage should be kept indoors and secured until collection day.  All fruit trees must be cleaned up, bird feeders brought in, BBQ’s must be kept clean, pet food kept indoors and any other attractants must be removed or secured.  Bear proofing your property will result in a safer and cleaner community and help prevent the needless killing of bears. 

Thank you for your immediate attention to this matter.
