Bear Sightings Reported in Sheshatshiu

On July 3, 2018, Sheshatshiu RCMP received two separate reports of bear sightings in the community.

One caller reports that people are feeding the bears. RCMP encourage the public to refrain from doing so, as it will promote bears to roam through the community. Forestry and Wildlife have been contacted and have set traps in the area.

To report bears sightings in the area please contact North West River Forestry and Wildlife at 709-497-8479 during regular business hours or contact their 24 hour line at 709-497-7116.
