Chetwynd residents urged to be wary of bears


Chetwynd RCMP are warning people to take precautions when they are outdoors after receiving several complaints of black bears in the area.

Police say they have responded to several calls of black bears around Chetwynd just over the last week.

They say anyone who is participating in outdoor activities is asked to be cautious and ensure their property is bear proof to decrease the chance of encountering a bear.

Anyone who spots a black bear is asked to contact the Chetwynd conservation office at 250-788-3611.
