Bears seen in the Mobile Home Park, James White Park and Parkland Drive in Fernie

Bears have been seen getting into unsecured garbage at the Fernie Mobile Home Park.  Please store all garbage in a shed, indoors or take it to the transfer station.  Bears have also been seen early mornings at the James White Park by the tennis courts and baseball diamonds.  Bears also seen on Parkland Drive.

The safest bear encounter is one prevented.  Secure all garbage and other attractants so bears move on without accessing an easy meal.   Be alert and aware at all times.  Bear season is here, expect and be prepared to encounter wildlife.
