The Rossland family hides from the bear after it breaks into their house

A Rossland family is recovering after a bear broke into their home over the weekend.

The homeowner called Trail and Greater District RCMP just before 1 a.m. Sunday to report that a bear had entered their home in the 1400 block of Columbia Avenue. The woman locked herself, her children and her dog in an upstairs room to hide from the bear until officers arrived.

RCMP say when police arrived, one of the officers had to force open the front door, freeing the bear that was trapped inside the house.

No one was injured, but the family was left shaken, Trail RCMP said in a news release Tuesday (June 4).

“The family did the right thing at the right time by calling police and sheltering in place,” said Sgt. Mike Wicentowich.

“This was a frightening incident for them, as it would be for anyone. The BC Conservation Office Service has been notified of the incident and will hopefully contact the family. Secure all your waste and potential food sources to help prevent incidents like this.”
