On Thursday, Alberta Parks officials issued a bear warning for an area in Kananaskis Country. The warning is for Canyon Creek Road and also impacts Ing's Mine Provincial Recreation Area, which is 20 kilometers southwest of Bragg Creek, as well as Ing's Mine Day Use.

According to officials, the warning has been put into place after a report to conservation officers that a black bear bluff charged a human.

"Although an advisory is in place for this area, bears can be encountered anywhere in the Kananaskis Region at any time," officials stated on the Alberta Parks website.

To avoid a surprise encounter with a bear it's important to make plenty of noise travel in groups and be aware of your surroundings.

"Look and listen for bears and their signs and keep your pet on a leash. Carry bear spray. Make sure it’s easily accessible, and know how to use bear spray."

The warning is in effect until further notice. Please report all bear sightings immediately to 403-591-7755.

The bear warning comes one day after National Parks officials issued a warning for Banff National Park after a cougar was spotted frequenting the Tunnel Mountain Campground area.
