Grizzly bears reported in Alpine Trail/Parkland/Canyon Trail in Fernie over the weekend.

May 17. Remove anything that might attract bears from your property.  That includes bird feeders!  Never approach or feed wildlife. Longtime residents, thanks for helping educate any newcomers.

We live in wildlife habitat. Be aware of your surroundings and respectful of the environment.  If you observed dangerous wildlife

  • accessing garbage or other human supplied food sources
  • that cannot be scared off
  • a bear, cougar or wolf seen in an urban area

Call the Conservation Officer Service Report All Poachers and Polluters (RAPP) 24 hr hotline on 1-877-952-7277. This allows officers to identify current hot spot locations and work with both residents and wildlife to encourage use of natural habitats and food sources before wildlife becomes habituated and/or a safety concern.
