Bears spotted in Cedarbrae and Oakridge communities

We have had reports through the night of a bear and her cub being in yards along the western edge of the communities of Cedarbrae and Oakridge, near the border of the Tsuut'ina Nation. We are advising people in those areas to be cautious this morning.

Alberta Fish and Wildlife have been notified and our officers will continue to monitor the bears as the morning commute begins.

We are asking residents in the area to make sure they look out a window into their yard before leaving their house to ensure the animals are not in their path. Anyone who does see the bears should keep their distance and, if in a home or vehicle, stay inside.

More information on bear safety and what a person should do if they encounter one can be found on the Government of Alberta website at
