cuaseway bay dumpster bearBears accessing garbage and apples on properties, causing property damage, bluff charging people and deemed to pose a risk to human safety have been trapped and destroyed on Mt Proctor in Fernie, Causeway Bay Hotel in Sparwood, a rural property on Dicken road and in Elko. Removing bears doesn’t solve the problem, as long as the attractants are there expect more bears to come in after easy food until hibernation time (usually late November).

Garbage, apple trees, birdseed and pet food etc. attracts bears to your property making it more likely for the bear to break into your home creating a safety risk for your family and a death sentence for the bear.
