The RCMP is warning Hope residents to be on the look out for bears.

Two more sightings were reported this weekend.

According to Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth, on June 11, a bear was seen roaming a backyard in the Lakeview Crescent area, for approximately 10 minutes. The next day, another bear was seen in the area of Silver Creek.

“We are assuming it is two different bears,” said Hollingsworth.

More sightings are expected as the animals go in search of food to fatten up from a long winter of hibernation.

Attracting bears are bird feeders, garbage placed out in plastic bags for disposal and fruit trees.
