The mother bear and her cubs remain in the Squamish Estuary and are accessing natural food, the District of Squamish said in an update.
“The Squamish Estuary rail network closure remains in place and we are happy to report that the mother bear and cub remain in the area and are accessing natural food,” district said.
District said the bear family continues to need the community’s help, which can be offered by respecting the closure and staying away from the area.
“This closure applies to everyone, including those who feel comfortable in walking in the area or don’t feel threatened by bears,” district said.
District of Squamish has installed additional signage for alert trail users to the closure and local bylaw and Conservation Officer Service continue to patrol the area.
District is urging everyone to obey all barricades and signage.
“The closure is expected to be in place until the bears hibernate which is typically mid-to-late November,” district said.
The Squamish Estuary trail network has been closed after the sow had swiped at a person and knocked them to the ground on October 17.
The traps that were earlier set by COS have been removed, although officers continues to monitor the area.
