“A recent rash of sightings suggest that bears are emerging from the hills, heading to town and adding garbage to their diet. Wild Wise Sooke reminds people to take simple precautions to prevent attracting black bears . Garbage, bird feed and chickens are top of the menu. Manage these attractions please!”
