Bear and cubs reported on Matevic road in Sparwood

A black bear and cubs have been seen by the pedestrian walkway on Matevic road in Saprwood.  Bear sightings also reported above the Mountain Shadows Campground.

Keeping garbage indoors and securing all other attractants is the single best way to keep people safe, prevent property damage, and avoid the unnecessary killing of bears that come into conflict with people.

Bottom line: Garbage, birdseed and pet food etc. attracts bears to your property making it more likely for the bear to break into your home creating a safety risk for your family and a death sentence for the bear.
