Wednesday June 21. A brown coloured bear and cub have been reported hanging around by the cattleguard on the Fairy Creek/Swine Flu trail the last few days.Bears defend 3 things, their young. food and space. Make noise to avoid surprising this mama bear and cub at close range. Bears recognize the human voice and will avoid you in most instances.
If you encounter a bear, do not yell, scream or run, this could trigger an attack. If the bear sees you, speak in a low calm voice to let the bear know you are human and back away slowly.
