WildSafeBC Update : Fernie, Sparwood and Elko
Elk Valley Bear Aware Posting from today:
“Monday August 24. Bear sightings, bears eating garbage left outdoors, bears eating apples dumped at compost sites and on apple trees in backyards, people approaching bears and taking photos of bears reported all over Elk Valley communities. Here is a brief summary.” Read more here.
On the same note, on Wednesday, August 26th at the Fernie Bike Park Gazebo, Bear Aware is holding a free presentation on what to do when you encounter a bear.
“Due to popular demand WildSafeBC will be doing a short public presentation (30 minutes) on preventing wildlife encounters and how to safely use bear spray. Inert bear spray (bear spray without the cayenne pepper) will be used to demonstrate. This is your opportunity for hands on practice with the inert spray.” Read more here.
