Edson Bear Warning

Edson, Alberta, June 19th, 2015 – Fish and Wildlife is asking residents to avoid walking in the area just south of the Edson Golf Course as a grizzly bear has been spotted in the area.

Signage is being put up and a team is being brought in to deal with the bear, but because of the heavily treed location it could take some time.

Residents are asked to be cautious in the area and be bear aware.  The link below has some great bear safety tips from Alberta Parks.
