Cranbrook residents are being warned of a bear sighting near a popular recreation trail.
A black bear and its two cubs were reported on the south side of the community forest.
Residents are advised to give the family of animals lots of space and make plenty of noise so they know of your presence.
Elsewhere, a large black bear was reported searching for food in the Slalom Drive, Mt Trinity and the Ridgemont areas of Fernie.
Residents are advised to keep their garbage and other attractants indoors.
