Orphan cub seen on Hartley Lake Rd and Dickens Rd in Fernie

Do you remember the mama bear and cub that had to be destroyed about 1 month ago.  The cub that has yet to be found has been seen on Hartley Lake Rd and by the Mobile Home Park on Dickens Rd.  Mama was never given the opportunity to teach her cubs to forage for natural food and survive in the wilderness as fast food (garbage and birdfeeders) are so readily available.  There are many more families of bears out there, let’s not bait them into town with garbage, bird feeders, BBQ’s, pet food and other attractants.  Bear proof your home and help keep our community safe for people and bears.
