There have been grizzly and black bears reported throughout the Elk Valley and South Country.

In Grasmere:  grizzly and cub accessing fruit trees and causing property damage.

Fernie:  black bears reported all over town feeding on apple trees in back yards, getting into garbage left outdoors between collection days and travelling through parks in broad daylight.

We live in bear country, thank you for preventing human/wildlife conflict at home, in our parks, trails and in the backcountry.
