Alberta Parks has issued a bear warning for all trails and areas between Votiers Flats and Shannon Terrace Day Use Areas in Fish Creek Provincial Park. The warning was issued due to multiple bears feeding in the area.
Parks said that although an advisory is in place for this area, bears can be encountered anywhere in the Kananaskis region anytime.
There is no indication as to when the advisory will be taken down.
Parks is reminding people to avoid a surprise encounter with a bear by:
- Making plenty of noise
- Travel in groups
- Be aware of your surroundings
- Keep pets on leases
- Carry bear spray. Make sure it’s easily accessible and know how to use it
All bear sightings can be reported at 403-591-7755.
