Large black bear on the hunt for easy food in Fernie

A large black bear has been reported on Slalom Drive, Mt Trinity and up in Ridgemont.  Bears will travel great distances for food.  If you have garbage stored outdoors, even an empty can with residue odor, a dirty BBQ, bird feeders which often become bear feeders or any other attractant then you can expect bears to come and investigate.  Do you know of someone in your neighborhood attracting bears? Please do contact Bylaw Services.  Bylaw Enforcement is complaint driven and will remain anonymous.  Unfortunately in many cases education needs to be backed up by power of enforcement.

Working together will result in a cleaner and safer community for wildlife and people. bear sniffing garbage can
