Mama bear and her cub spotted at Rochon Sands

What is believed to have been a female black bear and her cub were spotted at Rochon Sands on Saturday.

An apparent bear track was spotted outside a cabin at Rochon Sands last Saturday. Bill McTaggart and his grandson noticed what they believe was a female black bear and her cub near a shed.

What is believed to have been a female black bear and her cub were spotted at Rochon Sands on Saturday.

Bill McTaggart said he and his 12-year-old grandson, Tyler, heard a loud bang in the yard and when they looked outside, they caught sight of a mother bear and her cub by a garden shed.

McTaggart said he had been bird hunting and had temporarily stored the entrails from cleaning the birds in the garden shed.

It’s suspected that might have attracted the bear to the yard.

Bear footprints were found in the yard and on the driveway.

“I’ve never seen a bear here before, but there have been a couple of sightings at the (Rochon Sands) provincial campground,” McTaggart said.
