Bear sightings reported late at night on 2nd, 3rd and 4th avenue in Fernie

Bear sightings have been reported at about midnight the last few nights.  The bear has been seen by the firehall on 3rd avenue and on the corner of 2nd avenue and 13th street by IDES.

Keep all garbage locked up so that the bear cannot get to it or take it to the transfer station or the communal bear resistant dumpsters at City Hall, Arena or Aquatic Centre.  If you are walking around late at night, be aware and stay in well lit areas.

We have chosen to live in bear country.  Secure all  attractants (garbage, pet food, keep BBQ clean, bring in birdfeeders (bear feeders)!  Thanks for sharing this and helping our community prevent the needless destrucBear_Garbage_Cantion of bears.
