Monday May 26. Bear sightings reported on 11th avenue in the Annex, Park Crescent, Brickers Road, on the power line above Castle Mountain Drive and on the road to Island Lake just past the provincial park campground.

Moose sightings reported on Eco terrorist trail, Burma Rd by the helicopter pad, James White Park and on Mt Minton. Moose are wild animals and need to be given space and privacy. Stay safe by keeping an appropriate distance from them or just avoid the area. Use caution when walking dogs and keep them on a leash. Dogs chasing wildlife may result in human/wildlife conflict.
