Metro Vancouver has issued an advisory about bear on the BCMC Route on the Grouse Mountain.
A bear has been seen on a regular basis in the park. Please remember to be bear aware and don’t attempt to get close to a bear or feed a bear.
Metro Vancouver is also asking people to pack out all their garbage, including organic waste such as apple cores and banana peels.
Metro Vancouver is also asking people to stay two meters apart from other hikers as much as possible, and to keep in mind that hiking down the Grouse Grind Trail is not allowed.
Meanwhile, the bear suspected of biting the 10-year-old at Rice Lake has not been caught, according to an update by Conservation Officer Service.
Traps and warning signs will remain, but access to area is allowed.
However, the service is asking the public to be cautious, to not carry food, to carry bear spray, to keep dogs on leash, and report any sightings.
Both Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve and Lynn Headwaters Regional Park are also now open to the public.
