The Conservation Officer Service (COS) has received reports of a bear in the Spruce Grove, Northlands and Montebello neighbourhoods. This bear has been entering backyards and accessing barbeques and other attractant. We are calling on residents to be extra vigilant at this time and to ensure all attractants are secured. Clean your BBQs thoroughly, take your birdfeeders down and do not leave any food or garbage accessible near your property.
Report any bears in residential areas by phoning the Conservation RAPP line at 1-877-952-RAPP (7277). Early reporting allows the COS to intervene before a bear becomes habituated, and allows them to haze the out of the area.
