It’s Spring and that means there’s a lot of hungry bears looking for food. Bears, mainly Mothers and her cubs have been spotted in various areas of the city for the last several weeks.
Police attended in the 200 block of Panoramic Drive regarding a bear sighted in the backyard. On attending found that the bear had retreated to the bush area.
Authorities remind the public that if you do encounter a bear, to leave it alone, keep garbage and pet food inside. In most cases the bear will roam off. (photo from a bear sighting on fourth line a few weeks ago)
