Grizzly bear sighting at the north end of Old Stumpy Trail.

Thursday May 18.  A young grizzly bear was reported charging at a dog earlier this morning on Old Stumpy Trail.  Be prepared and expect to enounter bears anytime.  Make noise to warn wildlife of your presence and avoid surprise encounters.

Dog owners, dogs may provoke defensive behaviour in bears.  Mountain bikers, your speed and quietness put you at greater risk. slow down, make noise especially when approaching blind corners and areas with poor line of sight.

With the long weekend coming up expect to share trails with wildlife, hikers, bikers and dogs.  It’s up to us to be responsible.
