Bear sighting on Far Side trail in Fernie

Thursday July 10. A black bear was seen by a mountain biker on Far Side Trail in Fernie yesterday. Bikers, remember, your speed and quietness put you at risk for sudden encounters with wildlife and other trail users.
Make noise when approaching blind corners, thick brush, berry patches, by streams and where the line of sight is poor.
