The Kitimat RCMP are continuing to deal with bears.
Late August 20th, RCMP received a report of a bear in a backyard at a residence on Kechika Street.
For almost an hour, RCMP tried to make the bear leave, however, the bear started to become aggressive and lunged towards the officers.
After officers talked with Conservation it was decided that the bear would be terminated after it refused to leave the area.
Later in the week, on August 26th conservation trapped one bear and relocated it.
Only two days later two more bear calls on Dyke road, and Angle Street had been reported and conservation is actively working with RCMP regarding those instances.
RCMP would like to remind citizens to not leave their garbage out in the open as that attracts more wildlife.
If you spot a bear in your area, please call the Conservation office at 1-877-952-7277
