A grizzly bear and her cubs have been making the rounds on properties around Fernie Alpine Resort.
WildsafeBC Elk Valley says there have been several reports early this week of the family of bears in the Highline Drive area.
Residents are advised to keep any attractants either indoors or out of reach.
Coordinator Kathy Murray says it is much easier to keep human food away from wildlife than to rehabilitate animals that have developed a taste for garbage.
