A couple of Lumby residents are warning neighbours of a grizzly bear sighting.
Lee Allan spotted one around noon Sunday, Sept. 20 near Big Buck Road.
“It was approximately 20 yards from me when I first came across it. I was armed and it did not show aggression so we pushed it out of here,” Allan said. “Stay safe and aware, neighbours, it’s that time of year again.”
A few hours later Sherry Kineshanko saw a grizzly on Birch Road.
“It is not small,” Kineshanko said. “Bring your animals and kids in.”
The grizzly was believed to be feeding from the corn fields in the area.
