Bears and Halloween

Happy Halloween. Just a reminder to parents and trick or treaters that bears were seen on Ridgemont Avenue and on 11th avenue in the Annex just a few days ago. There have been no reported bear sightings since October 28th. Please ensure that young kids are accompanied by adults, travel in groups and make noise to warn bears of your presence. If you see a bear, remain calm, back away slowly and leave the bear an escape route. For more information on bear safety visit www.bearaware.bc.ca
