Two Grizzly Bears are on Cormorant Island

Two grizzly bears have been spotted on Cormorant Island.

The initial siting was at Sandyville, on the southeast end, at approximately 1730 on 16-Sep-2016. The bears were observed moving northwest towards Grassy Point. A dog walker spotted the bears on a Village trail later in the evening.

BC Conservation will arrive on Saturday morning.

DO NOT APPROACH THE BEARS. We need to give them space.

Please stay off the trails and keep animals inside.

If you see the bears, please phone BC Conservation at 1-877-952-7277. Keep your distance. Give the bears space until they move on or until BC Conservation arrives on-site.
