Black bear seen by Maiden Lake in Fernie

dumpster prettySunday August 9.  A small black bear was seen on the Maiden Lake Trail behind Canadian Tire last night.  Be prepared and expect to encounter wildlife anytime and keep your garbage indoors between collection days.  There is still plenty of natural food for bears in the wilderness, lets not bait them into town with an easy food reward (garbage).
