Sunday August 10. Black bear sightings reported by mountain bikers by Pete’s Bench at the top of Mushroom Head trail in Mt Fernie Provincial Park.
Black and grizzly bear sightings reported on Tie Lake road and Caithness Mobile Home Park. Bears were attracted by chicken coops, unsecured garbage and berries.
Bears, like people, will choose the path of least resistance to get to a food source. Be prepared and expect to encounter bears on trails, roadsides, by berry bushes and near other natural and non-natural food sources.
