Small injured cinamon colored bear seen in the wooded area behind the Super 8 Motel in West Fernie

There is a small cinnamon colored bear with an injured front leg.  He was seen on Castle mountain drive, in James White Park and has now travelled across the river to the wooded area behind the Super 8 Motel in Fernie.  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.

Bear sightings also reported on Dem Bones Trail in Mt Fernie Provincial Park
