Bear Returning From Hibernation

As we emerged from the cold frosty winter into the warmer days of spring, bears have been doing the same.

Bears have emerged from their dens after a long winter’s nap, and they are looking for food.

So its time again to talk about being “Bear Aware”.

That includes making sure you don’t leave anything out on your property to attract bears like garbage.  Pet food, even a dirty BBQ could attract a hungry bear.

The further north you go, the more likely you are to come into contact with bears, but they are ranging further south into the Qu’Appelle Valley and South Saskatchewan River Valley.
