Wildlife Sightings in and around our communities:
A black bear was seen on the Sinclair Creek trail in Radium Hot Springs.
I would like to applaud residents and business owners who have been properly securing garbage and picking their fruit trees.
It has been a very busy September with a high number of bear sightings and many bear related incidences.
Since late August bears have been spotted in and around Invermere and Radium.
There haven’t been as many bear sightings reported this summer.
Last week there were 26 garbage bins left out the night before garbage collection in Invermere.
With the local food movement taking off, we are starting to see an influx of urban chickens, gardens and fruit trees.
Now beginning its second year in Invermere and Radium, Bear Aware is hoping to repeat last year’s accomplishments.
