Reports of grizzlies continue to crop up north of Campbell River, including one photographed by an Alberta resident on Monday morning.

Photos of the grizzly sighting were posted online by Port McNeill residents William and Carolyn Stewart. The photos were taken by their niece, Stephanie Clarke of Cold Lake, Alberta, who was heading back home from a visit to the North Island at the time.

Grizzlies are uncommon on Vancouver Island, but they’re known to swim across from the mainland. A number of grizzly sightings have been reported on the North Island in recent weeks.

Authorities have warned people to steer clear of the dangerous animals and report sightings to the BC Conservation Office using the Report All Poachers and Polluters line: 1-877-952-7277 (RAPP).
