RCMP Media Release

September 08, 2017

The Nootka Sound RCMP has received a number of black bear complaints over the past week and are reminding citizens to be vigilant of their surroundings and are being asked to help minimize the incidents of bears in the area.  

The majority of the incidents of bears in the area have been the result of bears locating non-natural  food sources including human garbage that has been left out in yards and not secured.  This becomes a serious problem as bears that have been habituated to garbage will continue to seek out the easy food source and not leave the area.

The Nootka Sound RCMP is urging residents to be vigilant in removing attractants that will bring bears into the Village of Gold River residential areas.  These include but not limited to the following recommendations:

  • removing all fruit from trees as it ripens and pick up any fruit that may have fallen from the tree.  If you have a fruit tree and don’t expect to use the fruit, offer the fruit to a neighbour of friend that could use it.  

  • Don’t place your garbage out until the day of garbage collection

  • Cover BBQ’s after use and cleaned to remove any grease which is a high calorie food source for bears.

  • Don’t leave pet food outside

  • Remove bird feeders

The Nootka Sound RCMP along with the BC Conservation Officer Service can issue “Dangerous Wildlife Protection Orders” to the tenant, owner or occupant where insecure attractants are found.  If after the order has been issued and actions have not been taken to address the issues noted a Violation Ticket under the Wildlife Act can be issued for Failing to Comply with the Order and fined $575.00.  A Violation Ticket can also be issued for “Attract dangerous wildlife to property or premise” which carries a fine of $230.00.  

We all play a part in keeping bears and the citizens of Gold River safe and this can be easily accomplished with a few simple actions.   For additional information on black bear safety and tips on managing bear or other wildlife conflicts please visit the BC Conservation Officer Service Website.  

To report any wildlife conflict please contact the RAPP Toll Free Line at 877-952-7277.
