Monday July 31, 7:30 am. A grizzly bear and 3 cubs of the year were seen early this morning headed towards the Mt Fernie trailhead.
The safest wildlife encounter is one prevented.
At home: keep garbage locked up between collection days, clean up fruit trees, secure BBQ’s and bring in bird-feeders.
On the trail: Avoid surprise encounters, call out, clap or sing to warn wildlife and other trail users of your presence, don’t litter, carry bear spray and know how to use it.
