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.
