Relocation of Bear 105 and Cubs Attracts Nation-Wide Attention
The relocation of Grizzly Bear 105 and her three cubs last week from the Bow Valley has been attracting attention across the country. CPAWS Southern Alberta's Senior Conseration Planner, Sarah Elmeligi, highlighted the need for residents and visitors to the Bow Valley to be bear aware and take precautions when travelling in bear country.
“Managing attractants means ensuring you have a clean barbeque, no dog food outside, and properly disposed garbage,” says Elmeligi. “But it also applies to people who don’t live here and who need to make sure their dogs are on leash, they carry bear spray, and they obey trail closures. If we all work together, we can ensure safe human communities and a healthy grizzly bear population. We can coexist with grizzly bears, but it will take effort on all our parts.”
