Bear sightings on Ponderosa Dr Sparwood and throughout downtown Fernie

Ponderosa drive sparwood

This bear was photographed in a backyard on Ponderosa Drive in Sparwood this morning.  The gate was left open, the bear wandered in.  There are no attractants on the property and the bear scared off when the resident clapped her hands.  A young black bear being curious who has not learned to feed on garbage.  Let’s keep it that way thanks.

A black bear was reported early yesterday behind the BC Hydro site by the skatepark in Fernie.  A bear and cub have been seen frequently the last few days in the green space opposite Dogwood park.

We live in bear country.  Be prepared and expect to encounter bears anytime.
