People and Garbage kill another Fernie Bear. July 1st 10am.

Unsecured garbage has resulted in the death of this bear that was relocated form Alberta.  A harsh reminder that relocation doesn’t work.  Locking up your garbage and securing other attractants is the solution and is our reponsibility.  Conservation Officers will be patrolling and issuing warnings and fines (Dangerouis Wildife Protection Orders)Image to residents who will not comply.  It is an offence to feed wildlife in BC by intent or neglect.
