May 29. There have been daily reports of a black bear and two cubs (one brown and one black) all along 4th avenue late at night and late afternoon yesterday by the boat launch in Fernie. Never approach or feed wildlife. If you see a bear, stop, stay calm, identify yourself as human and not prey by using your voice and back away slowly.
