Monday June 6. There have been a number of mountain bikers reporting grizzly bear sightings on Lazy Lizard trail in Mount Fernie Provincial Park. The safest encounter is one prevented. Make noise to warn bears of your presence. Bikers, your speed and quietness put you at greater risk for sudden encounters and surprising bears at close range which may provoke defensive behaviour.
