Bear Sighting near Johnson Avenue

  • 2022-06-08

Public Notice - Engineering and Public Works reports a bear sighting near Johnson Avenue where it had gotten into a garbage can and a bird feeder.

The following tips are offered to minimize the chances of attracting bears:

1) store garbage in containers with tight-fitting lids;

2) put garbage out only on the morning of pickup;

3) put bird feeders away as seeds, suet and nectar attract bears;

4) pick any fruits and berries as they ripen; don't let them rot on the ground; and

5) clean outdoor barbeque grills after each use, including the grease traps underneath.

If residents see a bear, do not approach it, you may report it to (506) 444-4888. If a bear is imposing an immediate threat or is exhibiting threatening or aggressive behaviour, call 911.
