Mountain biker surprised a bear at close range on Uprooted trail in Fernie

Friday August 14.  A mountain biker was riding up uprooted trail and surprised a bear at close range as he came around the berm.  The bear ran off a short distance then stood up on it’s hind legs to get a better look and/or scent.  This is normal behaviour as bears are curious by nature.

Remember to  make noise to warn bears of your presence and avoid surprise encounters.
