Wednesday August 12. Black bear sightings reported in Sparwood yesterday behind the recreation centre and by the Jehovah Witness Hall on Savory road. A family of three grizzly bears reported in the lower part of Hosmer. Bear sightings in the Annex park and Slalom Drive in Fernie.
Natural food sources are drying up and bears are making their way into Elk Valley and South Country communities. Bear proof your property and encourage your family, neighbours and friends to do the same. Garbage on the deck, in the backyard or on the curb at night will bait bears onto your property, your deck and maybe even your home, jeopardize your safety and will lead to a death sentence for the bears.
Thank you for helping keep our wildlife wild and community safe.
