Langford bear rummages through scraps

Black bear spotted in Florence Lake area in Langford

Another bear was spotted on the West Shore this week. This time West Shore RCMP fielded reports on Tuesday that a black bear was rummaging through compost on Dawn Lane in Langford near Florence Lake.

The bear was last seen in the Florence Lake Road mobile home park but conservation officers were unable to locate it.

RCMP are reminding residents that bears are highly active this time of year while they bulk up before the winter months and are reminding residents to keep trash securely stored.

But it seems this bear was just trying to get its paws on some Thanksgiving leftovers.
