Come along and learn how to respond to wildlife encounters and get hands on experience using inert bear spray (like the real thing but without the sting of the pepper). Sunday September 17th at 1:30 pm at the Fernie Chatauqua Fall Fair at City Hall
The safest wildlife encounter is one prevented. Having bear spray accessible and knowing how to use it will give you the confidence to do the right thing (stay calm, assess the situation and respond accordingly) and not give in to the instinct to run (which can invoke the chase instinct).
Got apples? Feed familieis not bears. Bring your apples and use the apple press to make apple juice for free today at the Fernie Fall Fair.
Lock up your garbage, clean up your fruit trees and bears will move on.
