Bear families have been reported feeding on garbage stored outside between collection days in the airport subdivion, the Annex and West Fernie. At the moment we know of 9 bears feeding on Fernie garbage.

Irresponsible campers and residents are contributing to an increase in human/wildlife conflict and the needless destruction of white, black and grizzly bears throughout the Elk Valley.

Make it your responsibility to lock up your garbage today and talk to your neighbours and ask them to do the same!
