Nelson Police have had several calls for bears in the City over the past weekend. Areas include the Uphill area, Rosemont and Fairview.
We are asking residents to be aware that this is the time of year for bears to be looking for food and to be diligent in keeping garbage and compost clear.
If you see a bear in your area you can call NPD and also call the RAPP line at 1-877-952-7277 or online at www.rapp.bc.ca. They will prioritize aggressive or persistent bears.
