Black Bear

Morrison Creek and its abundant salmon support a decent population of Black Bears.  I have seen sign of a female and cubs around the Creek nearly every salmon season.  This is a very people-wise bear as she is very seldom seen and hopefully teaches her cubs to avoid us.  As long as people don’t leave fruit and garbage around to attract them, we can live harmoniously with bears in the neighbourhood.
