Bears relocated and cows missing

It was a busy week for the Golden/Field RCMP detachment

There were two separate instance of break and entries in the Golden area over the last week.

One incident happened at Top Notch Clothing when someone stole a jacket from the store. The incident happened on October 12. During the break in damage was also done to the alarm system.

Another break in occurred on Kicking Horse Creek Road. A number of items were taken in the robbery at an unoccupied residence.

There was the report of a missing person in the Golden area. Family members reported the person missing after not having contact with them for five days. RCMP located the male who was not in any danger.

On Oct. 19 there was a report of a missing cow. The reason the report of the missing animal was made is because the cow recently had a calf which is currently being hand fed. The animal went missing around Anderson Road.

The RCMP aided local Conservation Officers in the capture of a black bear. The bear had been spotted around the Selkirk Hill area of Golden. The suspected two-year-old cub was tranquillized and relocated to Smithers, British Columbia by Conservation officers.

There were recently three collisions in the Golden area. RCMP suggest residents make sure they get their winter tires on before the winter season is here. People should not wait too long as snowfall could happen at any time and being caught without the proper tires on could cause more issues on the roads.

Anyone with information about the break ins or the missing cow should contact Golden RCMP at 250-344-2221.
