Conservation Officers continue their quest to catch an elusive
bear in the Sloan Avenue area of the city

The BC Conservation Officer Service have set another bear trap for the west side of Prince Rupert, that as they continue their efforts to address the wanderings of an elusive bear which has been making the rounds of much of the Sloan/Omineca area, but has also been know to have explored a wider range of the city  from Kootenay down to Comox.

The City of Prince Rupert provided an update from the BCCOS, along with a request that residents ensure that there are no attractants outside that may thwart their efforts in trapping and removing the bear.

The subject of the search has been quite successful at taking on the BC COS efforts, the reports of his travels began at the start of the month, we first made note of the bears itinerary at mid month

The BC Conservation Officer Service has additional information related to Human-Wildfire Conflict which you can access here.
