Garbage and birdfeeders in Fernie lead to the death of this mom bear and her cubs

This mama bear and cubs had to be destroyed last Friday night.  Teaching her cubs to forage on garbage resulted in her showing agressive behaviour and a posing a potential threat to human safety while protecting her young.  Yes, garbage does kill bears so it is everyone’s responsibility to lock it up till collection day.  Thank you for Imagetaking a moment if you notice garbage on your street to either pick it up or talk to the people responsible.
