Garbage left behind the bear resistant dumpsters at the Fernie Chamber attracts bears

Bear resistant dumpsters are only as bear resistant as the users. It is unfortunate that people choose to dump garbage behind a dumpster especially when the transfer station is across the road. The garbage behind the dumpster attracted a black bear who will likely be back to feed on garbage instead of natural food.

Thank you to the people who cleaned up the mess, Fernie Chamber staff, a summer student and the Conservation Officer. The dumpster is covered in messaging advising users on the importance of using the dumpsters responsibly in a manner not to attract wildlife.
