Thursday August 18. A bear sighting was reported yesterday on Sideewinder trail in Fernie just above the Ridgemont subdivision. A bear with cubs was reported by the disc golf course in Sparwood the last few days.
Bears, like people, will choose the path of least resistance. Expect to encounter bears on trails and in recreational areas which often lead right into residential areas. Help keep our bears wild, lock up your garbage, clean your fruit trees and secure all bear attractants. Help your neighbours do the same, the end result will benefit everyone and help prevent the needless destrution of bears.
