Bears reported rumaging through plastic bags (recycling and garbage) on 4th Avenue in Fernie

Monday June 11.  Bears have been reported late at night over the weekend on 4th avenue, between 8 and 9th street.  They were heard rumaging through plastic bags.  If you don’t want bears on your property remove anything that may attract them.  This includes recycling.   Even empty garbage cans can attract bears. They are a visual cue as bears have learned that these containers may have residue odor and contain food!

Thanks for helping keep bears wild and people safe!
