Conservation officers recently placed a bear trap in Burns Lake near the Carroll St. crossing of the Eveneshen trail forest gully.

A bear and cubs were sighted earlier in the week, but the trap’s beaver bait enticements failed to lure any unaware bears into its hold. The trap has since been removed after being tampered with.
