Injured bear in James White Park area in Fernie

Friday June 26.  There is a small cinnamon colored bear with an injured front leg.  He has been seen on Castle mountain drive and was headed towards James White Park via the Trans Canada trail just past Castle Mountain Condos.  This young bear is not able to climb trees due to his injured leg.  Please do not approach or feed the bear.  Give him space, back away and leave him an escape route. Don’t bait him to your property, keep your garbage indoors till collection day and remove all other attractants.

Thank you for helping keep wildlife wild and our community safe.
