Bear and two cubs seen by boat launch and 4th avenue in Fernie

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.  For more bear safety tips go to and/or watch this short video on how to respond to bear encounters.Bears_Fernie_Joan Johnson 2020
