Grizzly bear seen on Mad Cow Trail in Fernie

Friday July 27.  A grizzly bear was seen sitting in the middle of a trail by mountain bikers just past the cattleguard on Mad Cow trail.   A small black bear was seen by the entrance of Mt Fernie Provincial Park Campground.

Put thought and energy into preventing encounters with bears.  Make noise to warn bears of your presence and avoid surprising them at close range.  Travel in groups during daylight and carry bear spray.  For more info on bear safety visit
