Trail RCMP has seen an uptick in preventable human-wildlife conflict as local bears are activate in the area. The bears are hungry and looking for food after a long winter nap. Please don’t be the un-bear-able neighbour who keeps garbage and other attractants in their yard. Removing potential food sources is really the bear necessity in Kootenay life, says Sgt. Wicentowich.

You can report human-wildlife to the BC Conservation Officer Service at 1-877-952-RAPP (7277).
