Parks Canada is warning campers and hikers in the Mosquito Creek area to be cautious — as a grizzly bear has been spotted lurking around the campground and hostel area.

The site is about 85 kilometres northwest of the Banff townsite.

The warning was posted to the Parks Canada website Wednesday afternoon and will remain in place until further notice.

People in the area are warned to be prepared to encounter a bear at any time.

  • Keep all pets on a leash and a close eye on children.

    'Unusual, but not concerning,' says Ministry after two Chatham-Kent bear sightings"It's likely that they're transient bears, so if a bear is moving through an area and it's not lingering or getting into food sources or not causing any conflict with people, there's really isn't anything that needs to be done," spokesperson Jolanta Kowalski said.
