The Conservation Officer Service (COS) has received reports of a sow and three cubs in the Bayshores and Spring Creek neighbourhoods. This family unit had been previously relocated as the sow had accessed garbage and was demonstrating defensive behaviour after being repeatedly approached by people and off-leash dogs.
The COS is calling on residents of the Spring Creek and Bayshores neighbourhoods to do their part and help keep these bears safe.
