Not the Biathlon Bears but the Black Bears! The website has been getting a lot of emails regarding Bear sightings and wondering what WNSC is doing about this. Fortunately the WNSC leases are located on Crown land that is wonderful habitat for many wild animals including Bears, Moose, Elk, Deer, Coyotes, Fox and the dreaded Squirrel! Trail users need to be aware of the potential to see wildlife and react appropriately if you do. Click on this link for lots of information on what to do and this one specific to Bears and Outdoor Recreation.
If you plan on using the trails, plan on seeing some wildlife and come prepared. A bell to let animlas know you are in the area is a great way to reduce your chances of suprising that Black Bear sitting on the trail eating strawberries.
If you encounter an agressive animal (not just Bears) or come across a kill site or food cache, please contact Fish and Wildlife problem wildlife staff at 780 538 5265.
Have a great time and enjoy the trails
