The Conservation Officer Service (COS) has received reports of two bears in the Alpine Way area. These bears have been entering backyards and getting into barbeques. We are calling on residents to be extra vigilant at this time and to ensure all attractants are secured. Clean your BBQs, take your birdfeeders down and do not leave any food or garbage in your vehicle.
Report any bears in residential areas by phoning 604-905-BEAR (2327). Early reporting allows the COS to intervene before a bear becomes habituated, and allows them to shepherd the bear back into the wild.
