Black bear sighting early this morning on the corner of Mill and MacDonald in West Fernie

A black bear was seen at 7am this morning on the corner of Mill St and MacDonald Avenue.  The dike trail behind is a popular place to take dogs for a walk. Remember that dogs chasing wildlife may provoke defensive behavior.

If you don’t want bears on your property, keep the garbage indoors, clean up fruit trees and remove anything else that might attract bears.  The end result will be a cleaner and safer neighborhood for people and wildlife.
