Bear Activity: April 23 to 29, 2010

There has been grizzly activity in Canmore Nordic Centre, Silvertip, Mt. Lady MacDonald, Alpine Club, Bow Flats, TSR South, Stewart Creek and Wind Valley Zones this week. Black bear tracks have been reported in Wind Valley Zone.

Wildlife Activity: April 30 – May 28, 2010

There continue to be cougar sightings in the valley, the most recent in the Rundleview area of Canmore. There have also been reports in Rundleview of coyotes closing distance on people, particularly those with dogs. Be aggressive with any coyote encounter by making yourself appear large and waving a stick at the animal. Carry bear spray and discharge it at the animal if possible. As wildlife such as elk and deer begin to have their young, give them a wide birth as they will be particularly protective of their young at this time of year.

Bear Activity: April 16 to 22, 2010

There has been grizzly activity in Harvie Heights / Benchlands, Silvertip, Mt. Lady MacDonald, Alpine Club and Bow Flats Zones this week. There were no reports of black bears this week.

Wildlife Activity: two weeks preceding April 9, 2010

Bear tracks have been observed in the north side of the valley between Canmore and Harvie Heights. A cougar was approaching dogs (off leash) in the Cougar Creek area. This area has been closed until further notice.
