Heading into a long weekend filled with outdoor fun, WildsafeBC is reminding the public to control attractants and play safe in the back country. Desiree Profili, from WildsafeBC Rossland/Trail, urges campers to remember to store food inside locked vehicles or trailers, keep campsites clean of attractants and she emphasized, “Please, no campfires.” With the hot dry weather, wildlife can be expected not only on hiking an biking trails but near and in natural and unnatural water sources, such as swimming pools. Profili advises people to play safe - carry bear spray, make noise, and keep dogs on leash. To help control attractants in Trail, the city provides two donation bearproof communal garbage bins, one in Sunningdale and the other in Glenmerry. Profili added, “Lets work together to keep our wildlife wild and communities safe while all having an amazing, safe and fun long weekend.” (Photo submitted)
