Moose and calf sightings on trails and in West Fernie

Monday June 16. It is calving season for moose. Moose and their calves have been seen on Uprooted Trail and in the marshy area between the new dike and the river in West Fernie.

Moose are wild animals and need to be given space and privacy. Stay safe by keeping an appropriate distance and stay in areas where the line of sight is good (avoid the single track trails or areas with thick brush). Use caution when walking dogs, keep them on a leash and/or under voice control. Dogs chasing wildlife may result in human/wildlife conflict.

Thank you for keeping wildlife wild and people safe.
