Grizzly Bear Sightings on Fernie Mountain Biking Trail

Monday May 13.  There have been several reports of a grizzly bear on Uprooted Mountain Bike Trail

Remember, the safest bear encounter is the one prevented.  Travel in groups and during daylight, make noise to warn bears of your presence, carry bear spray and know how to use it.

 Please report wildlife sightings and incidents where there is a threat to human safety to the Ministry of Environment 24-hour hotline at 1-877-952-7277. This allows officers to identify current hot spot locations and work with both residents and bears to encourage bear use of natural habitats and food sources before the bear becomes habituated and/or a safety concern.
